The flavors of fall are alive in these simple snack bites that are made from pumpkin, pecan, nut butter, oats, a touch of maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice. Perfect for popping post workout or on the go!
I’ve mentioned before that I am totally a pumpkin lover…I think most people are this time of year, right? But I’m also a snack bite/snack ball (whichever name you prefer) lover!
I eat a snack almost every day, but I don’t consider myself a big “snacker.”
I don’t find myself sitting and just noshing on things to nosh on things (unless it’s popcorn and I’m watching a movie!)…I like to have a couple of bite s when I am hungry between lunch and dinner or before a workout and call it a day.
What kind of snacker are you?
I log these bites because the are seasonal and so simple to make. Just mix oats, canned pumpkin puree, nut butter, chopped pecans, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice in a bowl then roll the “dough” into bite sized morsels, freeze and you are good to go!

Couldn’t be any easier.
The flavor of these little bites is reminiscent of pumpkin pie with the sweetness and pumpkin pie spice, but the addition of the oats and pecans give these balls a texture and flavor that is much less sweet than the actual dessert.
A note about low FODMAP or other dietary concerns: these bites are gluten free (if you use certified gluten free oats), dairy free, vegan, and low FODMAP. The FODMAP content has not been tested in this recipe but the oats are under the 1/4 cup recommended serving and the pumpkin is under the 1/2 cup recommended serving. As always listen to your body! 🙂

These looks so tasty and so easy- you can’t beat that! Have a great weekend Tara 🙂
Thanks, Sonali!! Hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
I also usually have a small snack in between lunch and dinner, but try to make sure it’s small enough that I don’t spoil my dinner! What brand of pumpkin purée do you use? Do you get an organic/all natural kind?
I honestly use the brand of wherever I’m shopping. Last week, I used the Sprouts organic brand and this week I will probably purchase the Trader Joe’s brand 🙂 I also use Libby’s too. I don’t have a preference. Do you?
Yum! These look so good!! I love maple syrup as a sweetener! I am so happy fall has arrived and it is time for pumpkin everything!! I love to snack. I have 2-3 snacks a day with smaller meals. It tricks my mind so I can eat more often. 🙂
That’s a smart way to do it! 🙂
