Ok, I have a confession. This recipe was created by accident!! I set out with every intention to create some lovely pumpkin granola, however added WAY too much pumpkin and ended up with these.. super yummy no bake bites! These bites are crammed with fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and are a great low GI energy snack (they release their energy slowwwwlllyy). They are a perfect snack to be kept in the fridge for post workout or after work munchies (or any kinda of munchies for that matter). You can also freeze them.

These pumpkin bites are super quick to make, are really easy to put together and can be customised to your individual tastes.. do no bake bites get any better?! Pumpkin wasn’t a cupboard staple for me but since discovering it I really am hooked! If you haven’t tried canned pumpkin then I strongly urge you to – it’s super healthy, tastes amazing and can be turned into so many great recipes (it’s also super low in calories.. only 40kcal per 100g!). .. and if you like these you should also check out my pumpkin muffins too!

Ingredients

  • 65g (~1 cup) rolled oats
  • 55g (1/4 cup) pumpkin*
  • 1/4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 30ml (1/8th cup) agave nectar (or honey)
  • 25g (heaped 1/4 cup) mixed nuts/seeds/dried fruit
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt (if desired!)
  • Optional: Chocolate chips

*You can get canned pumpkin from Waitrose and Amazon!

Pumpkin Bites

Method

Step 1

Mix together the pumpkin, oil, agave nectar, cinnamon & nutmeg

Step 2

Mix in the oats and then fold in your dried fruit/nuts/seeds - I used walnuts, cranberries & sultanas (or add chocolate chips!)

Step 3

Scoop out a heaped teaspoon of the mixture and roll into balls (use clean hands for this!) then place them on grease-proof paper on a plate

Step 4

Pop in the fridge for at least 30 minutes... then enjoy!!
