Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

Mix together the nut butter, honey, vanilla, salt (if using) and pumpkin puree in a large bowl and stir to combine. If yours is difficult to combine, you can microwave for a few seconds, although I didn't need to do this. I'm guessing if you refrigerate your nut butter, it may be best to leave it at room temperature before measuring and mixing. Add remaining ingredients and mix to combine. It's optional to let it sit in the refrigerator for about 30 min before rolling into balls, although I didn't need to do this either. Add additional mix-ins if your mixture seems to be too sticky or not at the right consistency you'd like. Roll out the mixture into about 20-24 balls and roll into pumpkin seeds if desired. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for a quick and healthy snack!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Important note for those with gluten intolerance: oats are naturally gluten free, but cross contamination with wheat?in the factory or in the field?is a real possibility. To be on the safe side, look for oats and oat flours that say they are gluten free on the box!

  • Many people proclaim the health benefits of honey, saying it possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Although the extent of its health benefits in humans remains unclear, studies have indeed confirmed that honey can help with cold symptoms and even heal wounds and prevent infections. If you're looking to reap the potential health benefits, dark raw honey is likely the best option.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Price Tips

  • Dried fruit can be expensive, especially if you opt for organic. Your own dehydrator could be a great investment if you eat dried fruits regularly!

Cooking Tips

  • Making pumpkin pie spice yourself is easy. It is usually just a blend of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice.

Green Tips

  • Buying local honey from beekeepers in your area not only supports your community but helps those beekeepers protect bees! LocalHarvest can help you locate some tasty honey produced near you.
