‘Tis the season for pumpkin flavored everything! These Chocolate Pumpkin Truffle Balls are the perfect healthy sweet treat for Halloween. Featuring seven wholesome ingredients, this easy no-bake recipe will quickly become a new holiday favorite. Who needs store-bought candy when you have a nutritious option this delicious?!

A creamy, dreamy pumpkin filling is covered in a decadent chocolate coating to create the ultimate seasonal sweet. Create the fall-flavored filling by combining pumpkin puree, cashew butter, maple syrup, blanched almond flour and pumpkin pie spice. Throw it in the fridge to set before you roll it into 14 bite-sized balls. Place the pumpkin truffles back into the freezer to firm up a bit while you put together the chocolaty coating. Simply melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave in 30-second increments. Be sure to stir it frequently! Once the chocolate is fully melted, dip the pumpkin balls into the chocolate and place them back into the freezer to harden. Store your finished truffles in the fridge or freezer.

These little Halloween candies taste like mini portable pumpkin pies covered in chocolate! We love to enjoy them with a hot cup of chai tea for a post-dinner treat on a chilly autumn night. Watching your sugar intake? Swap the maple syrup with a sugar-free version! You can also find stevia-sweetened chocolate chips at most grocery stores.
