For all of you Whole 30-ers, or anyone looking for a healthy energizing snack, I thought I would share this recipe with you. I realize while on the whole 30 you aren’t suppose to give in to sweets, dessert like foods, or snacks….but when I do whole 30, my main goal is just to stay within the guidelines of no refined sugar, dairy, gluten and soy. I love these for breakfast with my coffee, or with my afternoon tea. Using the cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove essential oils make a huge difference in my opinion!
whole 30 pumpkin spice energy bites
1 cup of mission figs or dates
1/2 cup pecans
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
