No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites

I'm in L.O.V.E..... With these gorgeous pumpkin pie bites :) I'm also in love with a handsome bearded man who likes kettlebells. Unfortunately I haven't figured out a recipe for you ladies who are looking for one of those though.

Anyway, I digress. I'm a huge lover of all things simple, tasty and food that fuels me well. While I typically opt for some veggies/hard boiled eggs or a bar of sorts for my snack mid day if I'm hungry, I decided to change things up and get down with some no bake bites.

When I first started sharing my fitness journey I made things like this all the time, but I put baby in the corner (aka: forgot about them/replaced them with other shiny thigns....if you haven't seen Dirty Dancing).

This is the perfect snack OR treat..here ya go :)
