I’m not going to pretend that these are candy.

They’re not.

They’re basically a pumpkin pie Larabar, but in ball form!

But they’re sweet (without any refined sugar) and they’re pumpkin pie flavored! Plus, they only take about 5 minutes to make and require only 5 ingredients, which you probably already have sitting in your pantry.

Ingredients Needed for Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

  • almonds – raw or roasted, but look for almonds without salt added.
  • walnuts – look for raw walnuts. You can get walnut pieces instead of whole walnuts. The pieces are less expensive and it doesn’t matter for this recipe since everything is being processed.
  • Medjool dates – You can buy medjool dates that are already pitted or pit them yourself (it’s super easy). Two brands that I like are Natural Delights and Joolies. You can find Natural Delights in the produce section of most grocery stores (near the bananas) and Joolies are offered on Amazon and Thrive Market.
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • sea salt

So if you’re craving something sugary, I highly recommend making these as a Halloween treat. They’re a great pre or post workout snack option and awesome for traveling. I’m definitely going to make another batch the next time we take a trip.

Healthy pumpkin energy balls made with only 5 ingredients – dates, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin pie spice and salt. They’re perfect for on-the-go snacking!



  1. Process: Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until the mixture is finely chopped and sticky.
  2. Form into Balls: Scoop dough from the food processor using a small/medium cookie scoop or your hands and roll into balls using your hands. Enjoy right away or store for later.
  3. Store: Place balls into a sealed storage container and store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks or the freezer for 3 months.


  • Hard/dry dates: If your dates are hard and dry, you can soak them in warm water for 10-15 minutes to soften. Just drain them well before using.
  • Crumbly dough: If your dough seems too crumbly to stick together after processing even when squeezing it together with your hands, you can try adding a couple more dates or adding 1 teaspoon of water at a time until the mixture starts to hold together well enough to form into balls. See note above.

  1. Making these pumpkin pie energy balls was so much fun! The smell of the pumpkin pie spice alone kept a smile on my face. I love how few ingredients can make for such a delicious and healthy snack, they’re perfect to pack in my husbands lunch box for a mid afternoon pick me up and they will definitely satisfy my sweet tooth without any guilt. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

      • I made these and they’re very tasty. Although I did have a little trouble. I doubled the recipe and then the dates clumped together into a big ball. I was able to make it work though by manually stirring.

        • Glad you were able to make it work and glad you’re loving them. Sometimes depending on how big your food processor is you have to blend the dates in rounds otherwise that can definitely happen.

  2. Those look delicious and easy to make. However, I did laugh at the ingredient list after you’d said that they were probably already sitting in my pantry. Maybe I need to work on my pantry stock, but I would definitely have to go to the grocery store.
