Let’s make a quick snack. It’s a fun way to have the kiddos helping in the kitchen. If you are worried about the pumpkin flavor, don’t, it's really mild. I wasn’t convinced after I tested this recipe, and I was happy that I had to test it a few times! This recipe does not involve knives, or heat so I can say it's safe, you can chill and put the kids to work! If you don't own a safe can opener, just measure the pumpkin puree for them and seat back. Once you have the mixture ready I recommend to chill it for a bit so it's easier to handle. Form the pumpkin oats bites into balls or Halloween creatures!
