You know, sometimes, naming a recipe is really not easy. Like with these Paleo Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites -there are so many things you want to highlight and not enough words.
Well, technically you can use as many words as you want but then your food blogger self-reminds you that you have readers and they need to actually understand what it is you’re trying to make them eat.
And they need to find this recipe in the first place so you should try to make that name search-engine friendly too.
How does Easy 4-ingredient Paleo Vegan Healthy But Delicious Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chips Cookie Dough Energy Bites sound? Yep…that’s what I thought!
So I settled on Paleo Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites but you guys, let me tell you that this recipe scores on so many levels!
The most important thing for us lazy-busy people: they are stupid easy to make. Your ingredients, in your food processor – done.
Well ok, then you need to roll the paleo pumpkin pie dough into balls but that’s about it. I listed 15 minutes total time in the recipe box but you could be done in less than that.
And did I mention that you only need 4 ingredients? Ahem, I’m kind of lying here but I figured cinnamon and ginger are pantry staples so I don’t need to count them? Please?
Ok so make it 4 or 6, you choose. In both case, pretty short list!
But really, what we actually care about is how good these Paleo Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites are, right? To be honest with you, I made this recipe 4 times before sharing it with you because I wanted them to be perfect.
I tried these energy bites with oats and I just didn’t like the chewy/grainy texture. Then I tried them with almond meal. Good, but not exactly what I wanted just yet.
And finally, the winning ingredient for these Paleo Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites was coconut flour! I love how it gives this great texture half-way between fudgy and cakey.
Oh and then, I threw in some chocolate chips, just because…why not?
