Pumpkin-Pecan Bites

tomorrow is the first official day of fall.

and so, today, i preempt it with my first pumpkin recipe of the season. maybe one of the easiest, most guilt-less pumpkin recipes you'll see.

the recipe redux has challenged us this month to make a sweet, no-bake dessert. with that brings super-quick prep times, and in this case, all natural goodness.

these bites are free of refined sugars, free of gluten, and full of delicious holiday flavors.

Pumpkin-Pecan Bites

3      cups pecan halves
5      dates, pitted
3/4   cup canned pumpkin
1/2   cup gluten-free rolled oats
1      teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1      tablespoon almond milk

Combine all ingredients in the container of a food processor; pulse until mostly smooth. Coat hands lightly with oil or cooking spray, roll 1 heaping tablespoon into a ball. Repeat with remaining mixture. Chill before serving. Yield: about 20 bites.
