Fall Fig Balls

Combine the fall flavors of pumpkin and spice with figs, chocolate and coffee, and you’ve got the perfect start to a delicious fall treat! This recipe was developed by our house food scientist, Katie Rosenberg. 

Step 1: Make the dough.
Use a food processor to combine the following ingredients until well mixed (mixture will be tacky):

  • 8 small dried figs
  • 40 grams oats
  • 36 grams pumpkin seeds 
  • 57 grams pumpkin puree
  • 33 grams pumpkin seed butter
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch salt

Step 2: Make the filling.
Stir together:

  • 57 grams pumpkin puree
  • 42 grams vanilla yogurt
  • 28 grams light brown sugar

Step 3: Form small little balls.
Flatten out a piece of the dough in your hand and make a small divot in the center. Put a small amount of filling into the center and cover the top with a flat piece of dough and roll into a ball.

Step 4: Melt dark chocolate and dip balls on one side.

Step 5: Sprinkle dipped side with crushed coffee beans.

Step 6: Put in fridge and let rest for one hour.
