Pumpkin Oatmeal Balls (dairy free, gluten free)

These little treats are so good! They’re sweet enough to be an afternoon treat, but at 55 calories each they’re light enough to have a few!

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup rolled oats
3 tablespoons chia seeds
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil

The method relies pretty heavily on your food processor.

I start with the oats, chia seeds and walnuts in the food processor. I pulsed until they were all roughly mixed together.

Then I added the pumpkin, vanilla, maple syrup, and spices and pulsed again.

I rolled this dough into little balls. Try to get them as uniform as you can so you can coat them nicely in chocolate.

Then I let them chill in the fridge for a while while I melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil.

The last step is to cover the balls in the melted chocolate. I’m not going to lie, this is kind of a messy process, but worth it!
