These pumpkin pecan sea salt fudge bites are the perfect fall treat. Sweetened exclusively with Natural Delights Medjool Dates, a good source of fiber and potassium, instead of refined sugar, a pure carbohydrate.
Puréed into soups and baked into bread, are two ways we enjoy this seasonal squash. However today I am sharing a new way to enjoy pumpkin… in my pumpkin pecan fudge bites!
For me that is typically midday or after dinner and I want something that is made with good ingredients so I can indulge mindfully. These bites fit the bill and are everything you could want in a fall sweet treat. Seasonal ingredients, fiber for staying power, a rich mouthfeel and just enough sweetness.
Medjool dates are my healthy sweetening hack. By weight, they contain 50% more potassium than bananas so they are great for muscle fuel and recovery especially blended into a smoothie. Unlike refined sugar which is a pure carbohydrate, Medjool dates add sweetness but are also high in fiber which helps slow digestion and prevent spikes in blood sugar.
If you make these, be sure to share with me on Instagram!
