Healthy No-Bake Pumpkin Bites (Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free)

The Jazzy Sweet Life

For today’s Pumpkin and Pinterest, recipe I am sharing a post from my 12-year-old daughter.  She made these Healthy No-Bake Pumpkin Bites for a blog post on her site.  They are a cross between cake pops and donut holes.  All I can say is they were scrumptious but don’t take my word for it.

 


This is what she had to say.  Enjoy

You can see more of her post geared toward active tweens who love to cook. The Jazzy Sweet Life

These are so delicious and easy to make treats.I would definitely make these again for an incredible lunch or snack option. These are a lot more healthy than a regular cake pop and donut hole yet they have the same texture as a fluffy cake or donut. I let my family of nine “try” these and by the time they were done “trying” the plate was empty.I would probably make a double or triple batch and freeze half for later. You have to try these if you are a pumpkin and cinnamon and sugar lover.

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal Muffins (Big Batch)

Day 7 of the 31 days of Pumpkin and Pinterest series features Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal Muffins.

I love making these baked oatmeal muffins. They are so versatile and you add just about anything to them and they taste fantastic.  It was no surprise to my kids when they saw me adding pumpkin to the muffins a few years ago.  Thankfully they are all like me and love pumpkin. Pumpkin and Oatmeal.  Truly it is a great combination.

Today I made them in the regular size muffin tin.  This size works best for us because the kids like to take them for lunch, especially the boys.  The oatmeal pairs well with yogurt and the triplets would eat yogurt all day every day if I let them.

The main ingredient is the oatmeal.  Nine cups!!!!!  That is nine cups of fiber.

Fiber and its Many Benefits

 

  • Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are considered fiber-rich high carbohydrate foods.
  • Research shows that fiber-rich carbohydrates help us stay healthy and may aid in the prevention of many digestive and chronic diseases.
  • May reduce the risk of colon cancer.
  • May help with hemorrhoids, constipation, and other intestinal problems
  • Reduces the likelihood of diverticulosis.
  • May decrease the risk of heart disease
  • May enhance weight loss. Eating a high-fiber diet cause the feeling of satiety to last longer.
  • May lower the risk of type 2 diabetes

 

It is recommended that daily fiber intake be at least 25 grams. 

If you are looking for ways to get more fiber into your diet her is a chart of high-fiber foods from the Mayo Clinic.

Prebiotics

Have you heard of prebiotics?  Prebiotics are nondigestible fibers in foods that are metabolized or fermented by beneficial bacteria that live in our guts. These prebiotics alter the balance of gut flora in a beneficial way and promotes the health of the immune system.

This is another reason to include oats in your diet during the cold season.

Oats contain the prebiotic called beta-glucans.
