The last couple of weeks I’ve been sharing a lot of pumpkin recipes (have you tried my pumpkin brownies yet?) 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!

If you are looking for more healthy no bake desserts here’s the one that my boxing class always asks me to bring!

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!

As you can see in the YouTube video, you can store extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three or four days. If you have pumpkin lovers in the house, you might want to double the batch. Yes, they are that good!

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?

I made these over the weekend and the kids and I loved them for our snack yesterday. I was out of raisins so I used mulberries and sooooo good! These will also be snacks during Thanksgiving break. Thank you for sharing!

How long will they keep in the fridge ? Can they be frozen ? Looking for healthy school snacks for my kids that can be made in advance. Thanx

    Laura Fuentes - August 11, 2016 Reply

    About a week in the fridge. You can freeze them, although the texture changes a little.

Is there a way to make these nut free?

    Laura Fuentes - September 8, 2016 Reply

    Use sunflower seeds.

What can I use instead of coconut as I am extremely allergic? It is getting impossible to find recipes I can use because of the obsession with something I can’t eat. Thank you!

    Oh man! these were not designed without coconut, unfortunately. Sorry!

I couldn’t find the nutritional info. How many carbs does each bite have? Thanks. I love the idea of using sunflower seeds.

    while I don’t provide nutritional information, you can easily add the ingredients to a fitness app.

      Do you have an app you like?

        Laura Fuentes - October 20, 2017 Reply

        You can use MyFitnessPal app. I’m working on upgrading my recipe plugin to have nutritional information but that will be a little while since it takes time to code and implement.

Hi Laura, thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!
I made these today and, while they smelled & tasted incredible, the mixture was very soft and would not firm up enough. Should I add almond flour? Thank you!

    I make these often and have not had an issue. Were any substitutions made?
