Our Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Bites recipe goes back many years before we really got into healthy recipes. We would make these for our kids and they would down them within a few days. The addition of pumpkin pie spice has taken our original recipe and put it over the top! Welcome Fall!!!!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Bites also make for the perfect bite for lunch boxes, pre/post workouts or just when you have a sweet tooth you need to fill. To be honest they taste a lot like cookie dough, but much better for you! Sometimes it’s one of those food we have to monitor or we could eat the whole batch by ourselves.
One thing we like about these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Bites is they are a recipe you can make and store in the freezer. That way when one of our teenagers is in a hurry to get out the door before school, they can just grab one (or two) and be off.
Just simply place all the ingredients into your mixer and run until all the ingredients are all incorporated. Then take your cookie scoop and make approximately 1″ bites. We like to place them on parchment paper, note these precut parchment paper liners are our favorite! Then place them in the fridge to get hard. Next just remove them and place them in an airtight container and store in your freezer.
Just so you don’t think every recipe we make is perfect, this was our second attempt at creating this recipe. We only share the recipes we think are amazing and our followers will love. These really are the perfect little bite and the addition of pumpkin pie spice makes them perfect for fall! Go make them and see how yummy they are, we promise they will disappear quickly!
