I am making these BEST EVER No-Bake Pumpkin Brownie Bites for a tailgate party this weekend and they are SO delicious I had to share with you all. Plus, it’s Fall, so they obviously have pumpkin in them!
As a Dietitian, people always think I avoid desserts and eat kale all day. That is certainly not the case. I have a busy life, I eat and enjoy desserts and yes I eat kale too! With that said, I also need to make things simplified in the kitchen most days! This is when pre-made brownie mix comes in handy for dessert recipes like this.
Things to note about the brownie batter in this recipe:
You might think when you are mixing everything together you are doing something wrong. But keep mixing! The pumpkin will incorporate with a little more stirring. If you want to add another Tbsp. of pumpkin puree to get it to the right texture due so. Be careful of adding too much pumpkin puree.
There is also no need to bake this brownie recipe. That’s be magic of these brownie bites. Add the chocolate chips, almond flour/meal, pumpkin pie spice and stir. No fuss with a food processor or an oven!
If you want to use less pumpkin puree – you can add a Tbsp. of coconut oil and start incorporating that it. It may need to be melted in a microwave safe bowl before you stir in.
Another delicious version I’ve made with these bites is to add peanut butter or almond butter instead of the pumpkin. This adds a totally delicious flavor, healthy fats a little boost of protein.
I like to keep these no bake brownie bites in the fridge for 15 minutes before I roll them into 1 Tbsp. size balls. This helps mold the shape of the batter. Once your batter is ready to roll, you’ll want to spray PAM on your hands so the batter doesn’t stick.
Ideas for toppings for the no bake brownie bites:
- Colored sprinkles
- Cocoa powder or cacao powder
- Cacao nibs
- Crushed walnuts
- Powdered Peanut Butter
- Dried Cranberries
- Chia Seeds
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- Hemp Seeds
It’s fun to make these in advance – and then when you are ready to decorate get your toppings ready to go in muffins tins or you can use cupcake tins are well. Both are easy and fun to roll in!
If you feel like this is too much of a cheater recipe – you can always make your brownie mix from scratch! You do you boo boo!
