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.Pumpkin Pecan Snack Bites - the perfect little make-ahead snacking morsel #lowFODMAP Click To Tweet
