Pumpkin Energy Bite Spiders


It’s finally Halloween- yeah! 

Once again, I wanted to make a healthier treat that the kids would actually enjoy eating and making. These easy spider bites came together quickly and the kids had so much fun putting them together that they didn’t notice the healthy part. 
Yield: 10-12
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 60 minutes


1 cup pitted organic medjool dates
1 cup organic oats
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4  plus 2 Tbs cup organic pumpkin puree
1 1/2 – 2 Tbs maple suryp
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbs flax meal 
1 tsp organic vanilla
dash salt

For the Spiders:
Large pretzel twists
Vegan chocolate chips
vegan frosting


Pulse dates in food processor or Vitamix until soft. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until blended, add 1 tsp water or additional pumpkin puree if mixture is dry, add maple syrup to taste. Transfer mixture to bowl and refrigerate for 45 minutes. Once chilled, roll into balls.

Cut or break top of pretzel twists to form legs, place 8 legs per spider, use dab of frosting to attach chocolate chips as eyes. * this is where even the little kids can get involved
