Why Pumpkin Pie Bombs
It’s pumpkin season and fat bombs are still all the talk so I figured you’d enjoy a quick and easy pumpkin pie bomb recipe. These pumpkin pie balls aren’t fat bombs, although you could easily make them fat bombs. I’ll tell you how in Recipe Modifications.
I made these healthy pumpkin pie bites with just 5 ingredients and in 10 minutes!
Gestational Diabetes Diet
I bet you’re dreading Thanksgiving coming up. What a time to have GD, right! Well these no bake pumpkin balls are well worth the 10 minutes to make. They’re basically pumpkin pie without the crust, which means they’re well within limits for a dessert.
There’s always a question about whether or not pumpkin is “safe” for you. Pumpkin is very low carb; 10g per half cup! The only flagged ingredient in this recipe is banana, but banana is low glycemic.
If you’re worried about the banana or lack of protein, check out the Recipe Modifications.
The fat and carbs are decently balanced, but if you want to kick up the protein, swap half of the coconut flour for protein powder. You could replace the flour for powder completely, but you’ll have to add more to get the wet sand texture for rolling. Also, if you do this, I recommend rolling the bombs in either powdered sugar or coconut flour.
If you want to make these pumpkin pie fat bombs, add 1T of cream cheese or mascarpone to the original recipe. If it’s too sticky when rolling, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of coconut flour.
For Keto, Paleo and Vegan, use your preferred butter alternative.
Both modifications are good if you want to eat these as a snack, because protein and fat are filling and blood sugar stabilizers.
- With 4g of fiber, each serving (2 bombs) is just 11 carbs.
- Great Vitamin A content which helps the growth and development of your baby’s major organs.

- Mix well. It’ll look like wet sand.
- Scoop 2 Tbsps at a time and roll into a ball with your hands. If it’s too wet or sticky, sprinkle a pinch of coconut flour into each ball.
- Optionally, lightly roll the bombs in coconut flour or powdered sugar to coat them. Caution: too much coconut flour will make the balls chalky.
- Refrigerate so butter can solidify.
