  • 2 cups pitted dates*
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup pecan halves
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseeds
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • *If the dates are dry or hard, let them soak in hot water for 10 minutes, then drain and pat dry.
  1. Put dates in a 14 cup food processor (You'll need a large capacity food processor for this recipe. If you don't have one that big, just cut the recipe in half). Pulse dates until they are in small pieces and start to form a ball.
  2. Add the oats, pumpkin, maple syrup, pecans, chia seeds, flaxseeds, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract and salt. Pulse to combine.
  3. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes. Scoop heaping tablespoons of the dough and roll into balls.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. These also freeze beautifully.
