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.
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
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!
