Raw Paleo Pumpkin Balls

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Jeff & I will be celebrating with back-to-back meals with our families today but I wanted to share another pumpkin recipe. After making such a large batch of fresh pumpkin I did some pumpkin recipe research. In the Great-Pumpkin-Recipe-Roundup I pinned a whole bunch of pumpkin recipe ideas and this was one of those.

I didn’t make too many adjustments to the original recipe. I actually added more pumpkin, so the consistency was more soft than solid and I was totally fine with that. If you’d like more of a cake ball type consistency you may want to reduce the pumpkin in my recipe by half.

I just had an amazing idea! If you have leftover pumpkin pie from Thanksgiving, I bet it would be an amazing ingredient to add to the date and nut mixture. Those would be real pumpkin pie balls. :)
