No bake pumpkin spiced chocolate pecan pie bites! Say that 3 times fast. Just kidding. But pumpkin spiced chocolate plus pecan pie flavor in a no bake bites recipe cannot be beat! Healthy, gluten free, grain free, vegan, paleo friendly, and perfect for holiday desserts or easy snacks! So worth making and drooling over!
Happy Friday! I have to end the week on a high note, since it’s kinda been a long one here folks. Yes, that type of week. But needless to say, today is about celebrating all things PUMPKIN (like last Friday), FALL, and Healthy bites.
But first, let me tell you story about pumpkin spiced healthy bites and how I actually came to make these. I promise it’s a good story, and you’ll laugh (at me). Mmm k?
You see, 2 years ago, when I used to ship Healthy Bites, I made a dark chocolate Pumpkin Spiced Healthy Bite for November’s flavor of the month. In fact, I think you can still see the photo on my old Healthy Bites Facebook fan page. Anyway, so many local and regulars that I shipped to LOVED this flavor! I though I was genius. Real original, right? Haha, kidding. But then my genius thinking decided to host a Black Friday Special for these pumpkin spiced bites. Yes, a $5 special on each box.
I remember the exact day and where I was when I decided to promote this. I honestly thought I’d get like 10 orders. So no big deal, right?
That was until people started sharing it and then all of a sudden my inbox flooded. Over 150 orders and close to 2000 bites rolled and all by the end of the weekend. HOLY MOLY!
I begged my best friend and husband to help. I payed them in wine and samples. I am pretty sure I bought all the pumpkin spice there was at our local grocer, along with cocoa powder. I also developed carpel tunnel syndrome after rolling all those by hand. Kidding. I didn’t. But I did get hand cramps.
But wait, there’s a point to my story.
Remembering that story, I think I should recreate the pumpkin spiced chocolate bites recipe, but be more practical about it, ya know?
I mean people like Pumpkin. People like chocolate (duh). And people especially like when both are made healthy. Oh, and people like FALL flavors and a good deal. Duh!Print
So here I am today, offering you a FREE pumpkin spiced chocolate pecan pie no bake bites recipe, and a giveaway!
*Update: The giveaway is over.*
Watch this quick video to see how to make these delicious bites of goodness.
I’m also going to offer you a healthy FALL food to make them with. And I’m also going to tell you that these bites are even better than my previous pumpkin spiced chocolate bites. No lie!
And EVEN more amazing With EXTRA DARK CHOCOLATE (Cocoa powder) vs protein powder. Well, that and maybe I’m a sucker for dark chocolate.
Thanks to Blissful Eats Granola for helping me with this FALL food giveaway! I used their amazing Paleo and Vegan friendly Maple Nut Granola in this recipe with a touch of pecan and of course, more chocolate chips added. Spot on! But you have a chance to win both their paleo granolas.
Yep, 1 winner for the Pumpkin Bites and one winner for the 2 Pack of Blissful Eats Granola. No $5 special, just free! Although if we ever win lotto, I’m happy to buy a machine to help me make 2000 of these and give them away, haha. Pray for that, OK?
