No-Bake Pumpkin Truffles

No-Bake Pumpkin Truffles

In transparency, I struggled with what to call these lovely little bites. 

Are they vegan?  Yes. 

Are they gluten free?  Yes.

Dairy free?  Yes.

Refined sugar free?  Yes.

Easy to whip up in the time it takes you to read this blog post?  Yes.

But most importantly, it fits the posting criteria of being delicious and deeply satisfying.   

They really don’t taste like pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bread, but they taste like a pumpkin cookie dough flecked with cozy spices.

They are more of a snack than a dessert, and I love to have one or two of these with afternoon tea without the worries of my blood sugar spiking and crashing on me.

I also have a couple more pumpkin baked goods coming your way so be sure to be on the lookout!

“What else can I use?

Let’s discuss substitutions.

If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and/or ginger.

If you don’t have coconut sugar, you can use brown sugar.

If you don’t have oat and almond flour, you can use one of the two.  Don’t have either?  I’m sure you can use all purpose, though I haven’t tested it so let me know how it comes out!

These truffles are really low stress, low risk, and high reward… everything I look for in an afternoon pick me up!
