pumpkin cocoa oatmeal bites - only 6 ingredients and 20 minutes for this simple healthy snack | realfoodsimple.com

These pumpkin cocoa oatmeal bites only have 6 ingredients and take about 20 minutes start to finish!


Pumpkin season is my favorite time of year. I love pumpkin recipes, pumpkin decorations, and right now my little one's favorite book is Patty's Pumpkin Patch. We have read it about 50 times in the last few days.

Last week I posted my pumpkin oatmeal bites and they quite a hit. I still had some pumpkin left so I decided to create another version of them. I kept the recipe pretty similar. Why change a good thing?

But adding cocoa to these pumpkin bites really takes them to another level. I like them even more than the original!

Ingredients

1 cup pumpkin puree - 100% pumpkin, not pie filling
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp raw honey
2 eggs
2 cups rolled oats

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine the pumpkin, cocoa, cinnamon, honey, and eggs.
Add in the oats.
Roll the dough into balls about the size of a ping pong ball.
Bake at 350 for ~12-15 minutes.

They are perfect as a quick breakfast or a snack. Unfortunately, they just won't last very long since they taste so frickin good!
