I’ve had a ton of people ask me why, you would want to give kids energy bites because they have enough energy as it is.  My favorite part about energy bites is that they’re not just meant for kids and an energy bite is not like giving someone a sip of red bull.  It’s just a healthy snack that has ingredients that will keep you going.  After the success of Brianne’s Caramel Apple Energy Balls with both of my girls, I knew I had to create a new one.  These Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites are the perfect healthy snack to get you in the Fall mood for pumpkin picking and cold weather.

Energy bites are great because they are packed with healthy ingredients.  You can feel good about giving them to your kids as well as eating them yourself.  Plus, most of the ingredients you most likely have in your cupboard so there’s no reason to make an extra trip to the grocery store in order to make them.

One thing to note is that you definitely should store them in the refrigerator in a Tupperware container.  I’m just a bit in love with the Rubbermaid  Easy Find Lids Storage Pack {this is an affiliate link and I absolutely do just love them this is not sponsored at all} because it makes it so easy to keep everything organized.  I used to have Tupperware that exploded from my cabinets once the door was opened and it drove my husband bonkers.  Not anymore!  I have the 50 piece set and it’s fabulous because of all the choices in container size.  I digress though.  You absolutely need to keep these in a sealed container though because the pumpkin makes them a bit sticky.

    These look delicious! I have pureed pumpkin in my freezer pre-measured into one cup bags … how perfect is that?!

  • Kim


    Is there a way I can make these without the almonds? Nut allergies over here.

  • Keri


    Could you substitute dates for the died plums?

  • Lizzie


    How long can these be stored in the fridge?

    These were not good. I made them using sunflower seeds instead of almonds as a sub for nut allergy. They tasted bland and I could not pick up much of the pumpkin taste.

    Well, tried the pumpkin energy balls. Recipe failed miserably! It was too dry for the food processor, so had to add water. Not enough honey, nor spices, which I added more of…because it was bland otherwise. And, tried to roll the balls. Ha! Much too sticky. Had to use a spoon to drop onto parchment paper. Let’s see if it actually stays put and can be eating once it gets cold. Not recommended at all!
