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 the 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 in. 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 45 minutes before I roll them into 1 Tbsp. size balls. This helps mold the shape of the batter.
Once your batter is chilled and ready to roll, you may need to spray non-stick spray on your hands so the batter doesn’t stick.
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!

In a medium sized bowl, mix together the brownie mix, canned pumpkin, flax, chocolate chips and pumpkin pie spice.
The mixture will eventually start to incorporate, give it a chance! Continue to stir until you notice it starting to combine. If not, add 1 Tbsp. more pumpkin and mix again. (Be careful not to add too much pumpkin, batter will become too wet and sticky)
Refrigerate batter for at least 45 minutes so it chills and the batter firms up.
Using a melon baller or small ice cream scoop, scoop out about 1-2 Tbsp. of the batter and roll them into balls. If batter sticks to your hands, spray non-stick spray onto your hands and then roll. Roll into your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Store in the freezer.
Be careful not to add too much pumpkin!If you don’t want to use pumpkin, you can sub your favorite nut butter. (I like peanut butter).
Some of my other favorite chocolate recipes on the blog include these Gluten-Free No Bake Date Brownies. They are made using Medjool dates and all ingredients are mixed in the food processor! I store these brownies in the freezer and enjoy for a pre or post workout pick me up!
Speaking of fudgy brownies – my Black Bean Avocado Brownies are a fan favorite. The avocado adds a creamy texture and you can fool anyone with this recipe – they will never know there are black beans in it!
These no bake brownie bites are a little similar to my chocolate lovers peanut butter bites – if you love this recipe and are a fan of peanut butter – this recipe will be another winner in your house! Keep them in the freezer and pop one out for a snack or dessert!
