This recipe is by Dr. Michelle Marcoux, ND.

Ingredients

3 oz cream cheese, approx. 2/3 cup

3/4 cup pumpkin puree, unsweetened

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp allspice

1/8 tsp cloves

1/2 cup Nutracleanse fiber blend 

½ cup  Sugar-Free Sweetener (I use Swerve) OR ¼ cup of coconut sugar if you are not avoiding added sugar

Optional (for chocolate coating):

1 cup choc chips

2 tbsp coconut oil

Using sugar-free sweeteners

I use Swerve in this recipe, which is a powdered erythritol product. I like to keep added sugar to a minimum in my house, so this is one way I can do that without depriving my kids of treats. 

If you prefer to use regular sweetener, granulated coconut sugar would be a good option.

Instructions

Use a whisk to blend cream cheese and pumpkin puree together until smooth. If your cream cheese is quite firm, you may need to use a hand mixer or a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined.

After mixing, let it sit for a minute or two and then check to ensure it is the right consistency. It should go from being slightly runny to being semi-solid and just a bit sticky. When you roll the dough into a ball, it should be slightly sticky on your hands but it should hold its form easily.

Big chunks of dough should not stick to your fingers. If this happens, add more Nutracleanse, 1 tbsp at a time, until you get the right texture.  I have found this part varies depending on how watery your cream cheese is. Once you have the right texture, roll dough into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball. 

If desired, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a double boiler (or just a pot that is inside another pot full of water – that’s what I use), slowly and at a low heat setting. Once the chocolate and oil have melted together, you can either dip the balls in the pot or drizzle the chocolate over top of them. I usually set them on parchment paper to catch all the chocolate as it dries.
