No Bake Coco-Nutter Pumpkin Balls
Yield 32 cookies
- 1 cup pumpkin puree (sweet potato works too)
- ½ cup unsweetened peanut butter (no xylitol!)
- 2 ½ cups rolled oats
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- Food Processor
- Scale (optional)
Melt the coconut oil in microwave or stovetop. (We used a liquid coconut oil, found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.)
Line a cookie sheet or large plate with parchment paper.
Place all ingredients (except shredded coconut) into the food processor bowl and pulse to combine, pushing down the sides as necessary, until the dough starts to hold together
Move dough to a plate or mixing bowl. With lightly oiled hands, divide the dough roughly into quarters. each quarter should yield about 8 cookies, for a total of 32 cookies, or you can make smaller cookies for smaller dogs.
Roll each ball to a smooth and uniform shape, then place on parchment.
Place shredded coconut into a clean bowl. Roll each ball in a handful of coconut shreds until evenly coated. Place cookies into a parchment lined Tupperware container, layering with more parchment as necessary.
Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
