Pumpkin season is among us, and what better way to use this seasonal delicacy than an easy dessert that can be whipped up and devoured in less than 45 minutes? These pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are going to become your Fall dessert obsession not only because they taste amazing, but they’re also made of wholesome ingredients, and are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and paleo-friendly!
Another thing that stands out about these pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough truffles is that they are extremely versatile! The main ingredient is nut or seed butter, but you can use anything from cashew butter and almond butter, to sunflower butter or granola butter if nut-free. The recipe is sweetened with maple syrup, but can be replaced with honey, agave, or even liquid stevia if trying to lower your carb count.
This chocolate delight is seasoned with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, which also includes ground ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. These flavors enhance the pumpkin puree and really give that Fall vibe to this dessert. Once you make your delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough, it’s time to melt your Pantry Cannabis Infused Cacao Keto Bites with chocolate chips and a little coconut oil for that classic truffle hard shell for our pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough truffles.
This recipe is lightly infused with cannabis to spice up your fall festivities, and it is easy to dose accurately and safely with Pantry’s Cacao Keto Bites. We included amounts and dosages for two levels: using 5 keto bites shakes out to about 2mg THC per truffle if you make 12, and using 10 keto bites shakes out to about 4mg THC per truffle if you make 12. If you have a sweet tooth and know you’ll likely want more than one truffle, use just 5 keto bites so you don’t overdo it!
Enjoy these pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough truffles throughout the week of Halloween to keep the spooky feeling alive, or make a batch for your social-distanced Halloween bash – they will surely be the hit of the party!

- In a bowl, whisk together nut/seed butter, pumpkin puree, and maple syrup.
