What’s better than eating a slice of pumpkin pie? Eating these no bake pumpkin pie bites without the guilt!
The last couple of weeks I’ve been sharing a lot of pumpkin recipes and your response has been incredible. I’m glad to know that you love pumpkin as much as I do!
This recipe is to answer Susan M’s request (one of my awesome readers) who asked for a healthy snack that tasted like pumpkin pie that was gluten free. Well, Susan, these no bake pumpkin pie bites might just fit the bill!
In this recipe, I’m taking all the flavors of pie and rolling them into healthy pumpkin pie bites -without the mess and fuss of making dough or even baking it!
With four kids in the house, I can never have enough snacks on hand. Recently, I’ve found myself making more no-bake bite-sized snacks that satisfy both the need for a snack and the craving for something sweet.
I’m going to show you how easy it is to make little bite size pieces of one of my favorite desserts! Last week we had two days of filming videos, and I created a video to show you how easy these are to make. I could barely wait to share the video with you!
Knowing these pumpkin bites are in my refrigerator makes me happy, because I know there is always a little taste of fall waiting for me. Who am I kidding! I love all things pumpkin. And if you do too, check out some of my other delicious pumpkin recipes: Pumpkin Brownies, Frozen Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pasta and more.
If you could have any dessert in a bite size snack, what would it be?
