Pecan Pumpkin Pie Balls Year Round!
I love pumpkin and pecan as ingredients, they work in so many great dishes and pecans are more or less candy, wouldn’t you say? As for pumpkin, it’s just the best and I don’t seen any need to limit it’s use to the Fall. No way, man! Pumpkin all year round, baby! These pecan pumpkin pie balls are an easy way to include pumpkin in our diet all year. Plus, pumpkin is high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre but very low calorie, so why not eat it more often than just Thanksgiving?!
Pumpkin Puree In Everything
I typically use any left over pumpkin puree I’ve got kickin’ around to make overnight oats and obviously I top them with pecans because, ahem, did I mention the candy factor yet? I’ve got some left over pumpkin from this recipe, so it’s pumpkin pie overnight oats for breakfast this week!
What Canned Pumpkin To Use?
I use this lovely Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin for all my pumpkin recipes. The quality is really nice, it’s super smooth and full of flavour. You can buy it on Amazon but I’ve been able to find it at most major grocery stores. The colour, flavour and texture has been the best I’ve found, it’s bright orange, tastes great and is super smooth. I’ve bought the No Name canned pumpkin before and it’s terrible but E.D. Smith brand is pretty good if you can find that one.
So, have a few minutes and some pumpkin, pecans and dates on hand? Boom, you’re ready to go. Toss all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and you’ll be sneaking bites of dough before you know it.
These are awesome rolled up in your favourite coatings like cinnamon, coconut sugar, hemp seeds, oats, chopped pecans or cocoa powder. They’re healthy enough for snacking and they’re definitely tasty enough for dessert!
