Who is looking for super quick and healthy snacks for you or your family? Me. I am. LOL. Seriously though, we are like snack warriors in this house and it’s so easy to grab packaged garbage that I really need recipes like these Paleo Pumpkin Spice Bliss Balls to get me through busy days without grabbing junk. Can you relate?
I used Nutsola’s LIMITED EDITION Pumpkin Spice Superfood Mix as the base of this recipe. If you don’t know about this great company, it’s a father son start up company based out of New Jersey. They offer gluten and grain free products that you can use to make bars, granola like toppings or use in recipes. All of their ingredients are natural, clean and preservative free. They are a mix of dates, nuts and spices. That’s it! Their Pumpkin Spice flavor is my absolute favorite. It has dried apples in it which makes it out of this world good.

I originally used this topping on my epic Pumpkin Chai Smoothie Bowl. But then I really needed a quick snack I could grab and go for me and the kids. That’s how I came up with these delicious bliss bass. And bliss they are. Holy cow. I added just a bit of pumpkin and full fat coconut milk to get the consistency to a creamy dreamy chewy bite sized ball. Everyone devoured them instantly.
If you don’t have Nutsola:
If you want to make these without actually purchasing Nutsola, you totally can! Just try a blend of pitted Medjool dates, raw cashews, raw almonds, dried apples and pumpkin pie spice to get a similar effect. You may have to play round with the ratios until you get the consistency you want. Remember, the dates make them chewy and sweet. The pumpkin and coconut adds a bit of liquid to soften them. And the heartiness comes from the nuts. Have fun!
Such a perfect little snack for the whole family!
