It’s snack time! And when I say snack, I specifically mean these Pumpkin Cookie Dough Bites.
How to make this delightful snack
I’m talking about these babes, which are a mouthful, literally (in such a good way). As soon as I tell you what’s in these puppies, and how easy they are to make, you’re going to be all over it.
So here it is: old-fashioned oats, flax, pumpkin, peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Everything goes in the food processor for a ride, then the dark chocolate chips get mixed in and rolled into bite-size morsels of pure fall deliciousness. It’s like raw cookie dough, but totally guilt free.
Let’s make pumpkin cookie dough bites!
So how do you feel about such a scrumptious snack that provides fiber, protein and heart-healthy fats, are easy to make and the whole family will love? I simply cannot think of a better snack. Plus, you can prep these in advance and store them in the refrigerator or freezer and pop them into lunch bags whenever it feels right.
Do I need to say anything else? Are you sold? Are you hungry? I’d say my job is done. And my job was super easy and sooooo good.
