I used the Parisian Pastry Seasoning Blend from JM Thomason Spicy Company in this recipe because it has all of the right spices for pairing with pumpkin and pecans. The Parisian Pastry Seasoning Blend works well in most baking really, since it’s a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cardamom and brown sugar. Add it to quick breads, pies, or even french toast!
This recipe comes together easily in a food processor. Do you depend on your food processor as much as I do? I have a KitchenAid 7-cup Food Processor and it’s definitely one of my most used kitchen appliances! They’re great for making hummus, homemade nut butters, pesto, and dicing or slicing fruits and veggies.
Since the Parisian Pastry Seasoning has brown sugar in it, I didn’t’ want to add much more additional sugar. The dates and chocolate chips add just enough additional sweetness to these energy bites without being too sweet.
For a fun crunchy coating, I chopped pecans and coconut chips together with a touch more of the Parisian Pastry Seasoning. It’s so good!!
