Super Simple Pumpkin Pie Bites
These are the perfect sweet ending for your plant-based holiday celebrations!
I work with so many clients who worry that Thanksgiving will derail their best intentions and signal the beginning of a steep downward spiral of poor food choices. It definitely doesn’t have to be that way. Let’s make great choices together!
What You'll Need
¾ cup cooked pumpkin
2 ripe bananas, mashed
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
⅔ cup Medjool dates, pitted
¼ cup water
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp rolled oats
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
How to Make It
1 Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
2 Into the bowl of a large food processor, add all the ingredients. Pulse or process until the mixture is well combined.
3 Remove the bowl and blade from the base. Divide the batter evenly, filling 36 to 38 sections of either a silicone brownie-bites pan or a nonstick miniature muffin pan (I use two pans).
4 Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until tops are golden and almost firm to the touch. Watch carefully so that you don’t under or over bake. Remove your bites from the oven and place on a cooling rack.
These bites can be made the day before serving!
