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


  • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips, plus extra for drizzling or dipping
  • ½ tsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates (Costco has them!)
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Melt chocolate and oil in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir until completely melted and shiny. Add 2 tablespoons melted chocolate to food processor.
  2. Add the dates, cashews, pumpkin, coconut, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt to the food processor and pulse.
  3. Roll into balls (I like larger 2-inch balls), or use an ice cream scoop.
  4. Drizzle the remaining chocolate on top of the date balls, or dip them in the chocolate.
  5. Enjoy fresh, or slide them into the freezer for a few hours. Store in an airtight container for freshness.
