Easiest Pumpkin Oat Bites

Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Yield: 10

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats (gluten-free oats work just as well)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax meal
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice or chai spice
  • 1/2 cup nut butter of your choice (or sunflower butter for a nut-free option)
  • 1/4 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup honey or date syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional:

Notes

Kid Tip:
Let your child dump the ingredients into the bowl, help stir, and roll the bites into balls.
Reminder, honey isn’t safe for kids under 1 y/o, so this recipe is for 1+.
We love these oats because they are glyphosate free.  

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a large bowl and then mix well to combine. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
  • Scoop mixture and then roll each between your palms until they are uniform in size.
  • Place oat bites onto a sheet tray.
  • Refrigerate and then eat within 7 days.
