I am so obsessed with these Natural Delights® Pecan Pumpkin Pie Spiced Date Rolls because they are filled with the flavors of Fall. Each bite tastes just like pumpkin pie, but with simple, pure ingredients and no added sugar! (hollllaaaa!) They are a only available for a limited time, so RUN, don’t walk to grab your goods!
My newest collaboration is with Natural Delights® and I am so excited to finally announce it! Over the next year I will be sharing a plethora of recipes featuring Natural Delights® Medjool Dates. Have you had them before?!
If you haven’t, here are some things to note about them. Medjool dates are a fresh fruit, not dried. They are the largest and sweetest of the date varieties. Medjool dates are low on the glycemic index, have 33g of carbs per serving (which is 2 Medjool dates) and 281mg potassium!
One of my other favorite no bake desserts are my Gluten-Free Date Brownies. Have you tried them out yet? I always use the pitted Medjool dates to make the process easier!
Cookies often involve a stand mixer, a bunch of dry ingredients, mixing bowls, and the list goes on! These cookies have minimal ingredients and are so simple to make!
What do you need to make these cookies?
Natural Delights® Pecan Pumpkin Pie Spiced Date Rolls
Quick Oats (gluten-free if needed)
Pumpkin puree (100% pumpkin, not the pumpkin pie filling!)
Pumpkin Pie Spice (Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cloves)
Chocolate Chips and coconut oil for drizzle on top (optional, but recommended!)
Can you freeze these cookies?
YES. I highly recommend keeping them frozen actually and popping one out of the freezer when ready to eat!
Are these gluten free?
YES. Be sure you are purchasing gluten-free oats!
What are the ingredients in the Natural Delights® Pecan Pumpkin Pie Spiced Date Rolls?
They have Medjool dates, pecans, and pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and Allspice). No sugar added!
How long do these cookies take to make?
About 10 minutes to make in the food processor, and then 30-45 minutes in the freezer! Use a cookie or baking sheet lined with parchment paper to place cookies in the freezer. Once they are frozen you can place them on a wire rack to drizzle the chocolate mixture on top.
