I had some pumpkin puree on hand from another recipe and wanted to use it up, so I came up with this healthy snack that’s not only no-bake but also completely vegan. Full of good-for-you ingredients like hemp seeds, dark chocolate, pure maple syrup and gluten-free oats, these little bites taste just like fall.

Being low on sugar, these make a wonderful little snack for your child’s lunchbox or a sweet treat with a cup of coffee. They won’t wreck your diet, and they even offer a protein boost from the almond butter, hemp and chia seeds.
