I am obsessing over all things pumpkin.  How about you?  These no bake cookies are no exception.  They are so good.  My picky 4 year old loved them and she claims to hate pumpkin.  Lol.

These can be made in minutes with almost no dishes to do after.  Can it get better?  I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Pumpkin Nutrition

The bright orange color of pumpkin is a dead giveaway that pumpkin is loaded with an important antioxidant, beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is one of the plant carotenoids converted to vitamin A in the body. In the conversion to vitamin A, beta carotene performs many important functions in overall health.

Current research indicates that a diet rich in foods containing beta-carotene may reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer and offers protect against heart disease. Beta-carotene offers protection against other diseases as well as some degenerative aspects of aging.

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Cookies

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup raw pecans
1 cup raw almonds
9-10 medjool dates
3 T raw pepitas
1/2 cup pumpkin (fresh or canned)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves

Pumpkin No Bake Cookies watermarkDIRECTIONS:
In the food processor, grind up the almonds, pecans, pepitas and spices.  Then add in the dates and continue to pulse.  Lastly add in the pumpkin and pulse until a dough starts to form.  When the dough is formed, roll into balls and stick in the fridge for 30-60 minutes to firm up.  I rolled mine into balls and flattened then with my palm once they had firmed up.  Meadow helped me make these.  It’s an easy recipe to do with your kids.  I got about 10-12 balls out of my batch.  Store them in the fridge or even freeze them for longer storage.  Enjoy!
