Pumpkin Pie Balls

YIELD: 8 bars

These Pumpkin Pie Balls are incredibly tasty and can be made in less than ten minutes! Recipe by Carrots 'N' Cake.


  • 5 Medjool Dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup silvered almonds
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch morsels + extra for drizzling (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/4 cups Cheerios or gluten-free Cheerios
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Combine ingredients in a food processor or blender. Batter should be a little coarse.
  2. Line a small pan, such as a loaf pan, with parchment paper and then evenly spread batter inside. Use a spatula to firmly flatten the mixture. Freeze for at least an hour.
  3. Remove mixture from pan, place on a cutting board, take off parchment paper, and cut into 8 bars.
  4. Then, melt additional butterscotch morsels in the microwave and pour into a Ziplock bag with a corner snipped off (or a pastry bag). Drizzle over cereal bars. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
