Yields: 28 Balls
Add dates to the bowl of your food processor and pulse until they form a paste, scraping the edges of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
Add pumpkin puree, coconut flour, and spices. Pulse until the ingredients are combined.
Adjust for the perfect texture: if too crumbly, add milk, one tablespoon at a time. If too runny, add coconut flour as needed.
Optional: Add cacao nibs or chocolate chips and mix with a spoon or spatula until well distributed.
Roll mixture into balls (about one tablespoon each), then roll in coating of choice if desired. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to enjoy.
· Flavor Variation: If you enjoy a more authentic pumpkin pie flavor, replace spices with one tablespoon pumpkin pie spice.
· No Coconut Flour: Almond flour can be used, but coconut flour is highly recommended for the best texture.
· Year-round: can substitute with hemp seeds, crushed pumpkin, or sunflower seeds.
Storage: Refrigerate in an airtight container up to seven days or freeze for longer storage.
