These Baked Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Balls are vegan, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly! They have a cake-like texture and are a tasty and healthy fall dessert!

They're made with pure, simple ingredients and superfoods that are actually good for you, making it a no-fault dessert. Well, only if you can control yourself and limit yourself to 2 pieces. And let me tell you … it is not an easy task.

What ingredients do you need to make pumpkin balls?

It may seem like a lot, but grated coconut, cocoa beans, and nuts are just for an optional coating. And you don't even need to top them, or you can just top them with chocolate chips … YUM!

So it really just involves a bowl of dry stuff: oatmeal, rolled oats, pumpkin spice, and cane sugar.

Then a bowl of the wet stuff: almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie mix, or just canned pumpkin.

Then you mix everything, roll them into cute balls of happiness and then cover them as you like. I was also planning to roll a little with cane sugar and cinnamon, but I ate too many samples, I guess that's what happens when you make a dessert without baking! But can you blame me? Look at these beauties!

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

Servings: 12 servings

Calories: 128kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups gluten-free oatmeal or grind oatmeal in blender until flour-shaped
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons of cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin pie spices
  • 1/4 cup almond butter or other nut butter of choice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree or pumpkin pie puree
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Cocoa grated coconut tips and crushed nuts for coating

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, rolled oats, cane sugar, and pumpkin pie spices, and mix well.

  • In another microwave-safe medium bowl, heat the almond butter for about 30-60 seconds until it is more liquid. Mix together maple syrup, vanilla extract, and canned pumpkin.

  • Pour the dry mix (oatmeal, sugar, and spices) into the wet mix (almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and canned pumpkin), and mix well until a firm texture is formed.

  • If the mixture needs more moisture, add a tablespoon of canned pumpkin, and if it's too wet, you can add a tablespoon of oatmeal. Since it is not baked, you can also try it and add more cane sugar if you like.

  • Using your hands, form the dough into small bite-size balls.

  • Roll the balls in optional coatings (grated coconut, chopped nuts, and cocoa beans) and place them on a baking sheet.

  • You can enjoy them as they are or refrigerate them for 10 minutes to reaffirm them.

Notes

  • For the paleo option, substitute rolled oats and oatmeal with 3/4 cup coconut flour.
  • Cane sugar can be removed, especially if you are using a pumpkin pie puree that is usually already sweetened
