NO BAKE Pumpkin Truffles
I don't know about you, but lately all I want is easy. Easy dinners. Easy breakfasts. Easy lunches. Just easy. It must be the busy-ness of the fall, with soccer and dance classes and volunteers meetings, etc.
I don't feel like baking much. No bake recipes are usually all I do in the summer. But for some odd reason we, here in New England, are having a very warm fall season, which is quite unusual. Must be the warmer weather even with the beautiful fall changing colors of the leaves, but I'm just not feeling like baking. Excuse me while I just continue on with easy, no bake desserts for a little while longer and todays recipe is no exception.
Paleo Pumpkin Truffles
This takes like 2 steps! Dump ingredients into a stand mixer and scoop with a cookie scooper! Ok 3 steps because you have to refrigerate them a bit before serving, which will be really hard once you taste the batter, but they are worth the wait.
Most of you know my littlest child has a tree nut allergy so I am forever trying to disguise my use of coconut butter, which he can have and which allows me to make recipes low carb without the use of nut butters. Problem is, he hates the taste of it. So I mask the recipes with coconut butter using other ingredients and so far is working out perfectly. He's not wise to it and I'm not the least bit guilty about hiding the ingredient that pulls easy recipes like this one together.
If you don't have any nut allergies you could sub out the coconut butter with cashew butter or almond butter, but both of those have pretty strong flavors which might overtake the flavor of the pumpkin, just a fair warning there for you if you do sub it out.
Sugar Free Sweetener Options
Other substitutions for the sweeteners I am using here:
- If you don't like or use liquid stevia, switch it out for Swerve confectioner's sweetener. I would suggest just ⅓ cup. Swerve also has a brown sugar sub that's delicious as well!
- Any sweetener you prefer could be used here, maybe just ½ cup.
- I also like Sukrin which is like a brown sugar substitute and works well in recipes.
I would also keep these refrigerated until serving and continue to store left overs in the fridge as well only because if the weather is warm, these will get really soft, really quick if left out on the counter.
