These Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bites could easily please a crowd of pumpkin-obsessed housewives. (So you should totally try it out to see what the hype is all about.)
The fact that these are no bake makes them even better because you don’t even have to work for them. Just mix the batter together, roll them into bite-sized pieces, and plop them right into your mouth! Boom. You have a delicious and nutritious fall-inspired treat.
Are you hooked yet?
I seriously think these took me maybe 15 minutes to make. (And another 5 to devour, then another 10 to make some more, another 3 to devour…)
My boyfriend is obsessed with these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bites. Way more than I am, to be quite honest. I’m not even a fan of pumpkin. Did I actually just admit that to the entire internet? Oops. You caught me. I’m just not that into pumpkin. But these, oh these make me want to change that. These bites have pleased even the (dare I say it?) “pumpkin-haters”, like myself.
So, even if you don’t like pumpkin. You should still give these a chance. I think what makes them so like-able is that they have a very good pumpkin to other-ingredient ratio. There’s other things in them to counterbalance the taste of pumpkin guts. Brown sugar, Maple syrup, any kind of nut butter, some vanilla extract, and of course -the chocolate chips.
I won’t blame you if your chocolate chip pumpkin batter never even makes it to ball forms. (I see you, over there. Yeah you, eating straight out of the bowl with a spoon.)

Notes on Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bites:
- Use any nut or seed butter of choice. (I find that almond butter and peanut butter work the best.)
- Be sure to use a can of 100% pumpkin, and not a can of “pumpkin filling”. This mistake will have you royally screwed. (Or maybe not, maybe it will be even better. There is a whole world of options out there.)
- Fun Tip: If you have all the ingredients on hand, you can make your own pumpkin pie spice instead of buying another thing at the store. You can find recipes online but the basics are ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, and ground cloves.
