Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Place oats, almonds, and coconut on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Combine pumpkin, honey, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and cayenne in a large bowl. Stir in the toasted oat mixture.
  4. Shape the mixture into 20 balls, about 2 teaspoons each. Place the balls on a serving tray. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
