This is basically like eating delicious pumpkin infused chocolate chip cookie dough...without fear of raw eggs. Or inhaling mass amounts of sugar or butter. For a healthy way to fill that cookie dough craving, reach for a food processor or blender and this quick no-bake recipe:
Pumpkin Cookie Dough Bites
yields about 2 dozen little cookies
1 cup gluten-free oats
1/4 cup raw unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
5 medjool dates
1/4 cup pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons nondairy mini chocolate chips*
* optional: omit or use raw cacao nibs for a cleaner version
1. In a food processor, pulse the oats, coconuts and sunflower seeds until they resemble a coarse flour.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and process/blend, adding the nondairy chocolate chips last.
3. Roll into tablespoon or smaller sized balls and enjoy or refrigerate in an airtight container. Keep chilled.
