These pumpkin spice cookie dough bites are a delicious no-bake dessert to try this fall! These are sweet, easy to make, and perfectly spiced with cinnamon and ginger.
Fall is one of my favorite seasons. It’s so pretty outside with all the changing leaves, the air is nice and crisp, and there are so many wonderful fall recipes to make.
Something that can be a little frustrating though, is that fall gets so busy! There are so many things to do and see that our days get a little bit too full sometimes.
Even though we’re busy, I don’t want to miss out on homemade treats, so that’s where these pumpkin spice cookie dough bites come in. These little bites are super easy to make, and since they’re no-bake, they barely take any time at all to make.

Make sure you use certified gluten free oats if you are on a gluten free diet. GF Harvest is a very allergy friendly brand that’s available on Amazon. This brand is made in a nut free, allergy friendly facility.
There are a few options for dairy free white chocolate chips. We use white chocolate chips from PASCHA Chocolate. They work very well in this recipe, and my boys love them.
Enjoy Life has just come out with white chocolate baking chips, and although I haven’t found them in my area yet, maybe they are available near you.
Nestle also makes allergy friendly white chocolate chips. I have not tried this brand, but I have seen these sold at regular grocery stores.
Please call to make sure any brand is safe for your own dietary needs.
Store leftover cookie dough bites in an airtight container. They should stay fresh for about 5 days.
These can be frozen. Store them in a freezer safe container – they should stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- You can use sweet potato or squash puree instead of pumpkin puree if you prefer.
- Add some pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds for a little crunch.
- Use regular chocolate chips if you like.
- You can use coconut oil instead of vegan buttery spread if you prefer. Use refined coconut oil so that they don’t taste like coconut.
