Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

A delicious pumpkin spice version of the ever popular no bake energy bites.  This version can be made paleo as well.

It’s hard to believe I originally posted my recipe for No Bake Energy Bites back in the early summer of 2011.  That’s like a million blogging years ago right? 

Shortly after that, I made a chocolate version and then a grain-free version. But don’t be fooled – the grain-free version isn’t healthy. It has candy in it. 😉  

In any case, energy bites seem to be all over the blogosphere now and it’s been years since I posted a different version, even though I keep some kind of energy bite on hand 98% of the time. 

Well from now on I will be posting more versions as I think of them 🙂  I hope you’ll enjoy them!

For this recipe, you’ll need pumpkin pie spice.  You can easily make your own pumpkin pie spice.  I make quite a few of my own spice combinations and I even have a recipe for pumpkin pie spice here if you’re interested or even if you just don’t have any right now and don’t want to run to the store 🙂
