These super easy and delicious Chocolate Covered Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Bites are a whole grain snack that doubles as a dessert packed with fall flavor!



For the bites:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup almond butter (the drippy kind)
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the chocolate coating:

  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • 1½ tsp coconut oil
  • finely chopped candied ginger, for topping


  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together oats, flax, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Add almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla and stir until combined.
  3. Wet hands and form dough into about 18 balls. Place on cookie sheet and freeze while you melt the chocolate.
  4. Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a mug (this makes the balls easy to coat). Melt in 20 second increments, stirring each time, until melted.
  5. Remove bites from freezer and use a fork to coat each bite in the chocolate mixture. Sprinkle with candied ginger and freeze until hardened. Once they're set, bites can be transferred to a container and stored in the refrigerator or freezer. I like them best right out of the freezer!
