Pumpkin Date Balls are a sweet fall treat that you can feel good about eating. Here is the pumpkin pecan flavor to try!



  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates (Costco has them!)
  • ½ cup pecans, plus 12 pecans for topping
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Toss the dates, pecans, pumpkin, coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt into your food processor and pulse.
  2. Roll into balls (I like larger 2-inch balls), or use an ice cream scoop.
  3. Top with a pecan by gently pressing one into each ball.
  4. Enjoy fresh, or slide them into the freezer for a few hours. Store in an airtight container for freshness.
