Made with a handful of pantry staples, creamy pumpkin puree, and warming spices, these pumpkin balls are a delicious way to snack healthy all autumn long - and bonus, they can be made in under fifteen minutes.

No-Bake Pumpkin Balls Ingredients

The base of these pumpkin balls is made of raisins, almond meal, and pecans. Raisins provide ample fiber as well as B vitamins, iron, and potassium. They are also naturally sweet, which means this recipe requires no additional sweetener.

Almond meal, which is different from almond flour, is made from ground whole almonds. Almond meal has a thicker texture then almond flour and is made from almonds with their skins left on, not blanched in the case of almond flour. The meal also has a grittier texture, which is ideal for these no bake balls.

Like almonds, almond meal is a good source of healthy fats, vitamin E, and a variety of other vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Many of these beneficial nutrients are also found in pecans, too. Pecans give these no bake pumpkin balls a hearty and nutty flavor, while also adding texture to the balls.

Real deal pumpkin puree gives these balls a delicious flavor. Make your own pumpkin puree from sugar pie pumpkins, or purchase an organic BPA-free can instead.

Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger naturally add warmth and depth to these no bake pumpkin balls, as well as a variety of antioxidants. Sprinkle liberally and add more spices to taste, if you’d like.

Toss all the ingredients in a food processor and make seasonal pumpkin treats in no time at all. They’re delicious as an on-the-go snack and are fun to throw in lunchboxes, too. Enjoy!
