`9 medjool dates - remove the pit, if they are very dry you may need to soak them in water for a few minutes. i used the ones pictured. They were quite moist and required zero soaking
`1/2 cup of coconut flour
`1/2 cup of pumpkin puree (i used canned)
`1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
` a couple cranks of sea salt
`2 Tbsp of cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)
Step One: Add everything but the cacao nibs/chocolate chips to a food processor with an S blade, and process until it makes a sticky crumble texture and tends to wad up on one side of the food processor. Add the cacao nibs/chocolate chips and process again to mix in Test the batter by making sure if you grab a little piece it's tacky and will stick together when you start rolling.
Step two: Roll into balls of any size you prefer. I rolled medium sized balls and this recipe yielded 11 pumpkin energy bites.
Step 3: Devour or Share. I recommend keeping any remaining bites in a glass container in your refrigerator.
The bites are really 'cakey' inside, and taste almost like pumpkin or carrot cake.
They are truly delicious.
