Pumpkin Pie Snack Balls

UPDATED: 10/17/16
1/4 cup raw almonds
1 cup oats
12 Medjool dates, pitted (make sure they're soft and not coming right from the refrigerator)
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. allspice (optional)
1/4 t. salt

In a food processor, process the almonds with the S-blade into tiny pieces. Add the oats and pulse them a few times. Move mixture to a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Add dates, pumpkin, and spices/salt to the food processor. Process until fairly smooth (some small pieces of date are fine). Add to the mixing bowl. Stir to combine all of the ingredients together well with a wooden spoon. With clean hands or gloved hands, make balls and place them on waxed paper-covered plate or tray. Chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
