Happy Fall! I thought this would be the perfect time to get back into blogging. It’s my favorite time of the year to be in the kitchen, so it just seems fitting. Now I don’t know about where you guys are, but it does not feel like fall in Upstate NY. Ninety degrees in September doesn’t exactly scream “autumn” and I haven’t even thought about picking a single apple or pumpkin. However, the calendar says its September, the pools are closed, and the mums are on my porch so I will cook like it’s fall.
These no-bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Bites are perfect in the morning for a quick breakfast on the go or a mid-day snack.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup pumpkin purée
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 tbsp flax seeds
- 4 tbsp agave nectar
- 1/2 tsp Wildtree Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Blend
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll the mixture into small balls, about 2 tbsp for each bite. Refrigerate or freeze the bites for about an hour to harden.
I like to store these in the freezer in an air-tight container or freezer bag. Whenever I want one or two, I take them out and thaw them for about 20 minutes.
