Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkin Candies (Vegan + Grain-Free)

Thanks to our friend Rachel at RachlMansfield for sharing this sweet holiday recipe! These easy to make dark chocolate peanut butter pumpkin candies are made with plant-based, grain-free and gluten-free ingredients. Plus, they have extra protein in them!


Ingredients: (Servings: 9 candies)

  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter + 2 tablespoons for drizzling
  • ¼ cup organic pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup ALOHA Plant-based Vanilla Protein Powder (add 2 more tablespoons coconut flour if you do not have protein but I highly recommend adding to add extra boost!)
  • 2 tablespoons manuka honey or maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 5-6 ounces of dark chocolate (or milk chocolate if you’d prefer that!)


  1. Line a baking sheet or cutting board with parchment paper
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ½ cup peanut butter, pumpkin puree, protein powder, honey, coconut flour and pumpkin pie spice until creamy and well combined (you can also use food processor but not necessary)
  3. Using your hands, form into 9 candies
  4. Melt dark chocolate over the stove or in microwave. Depending on the chocolate you use, you may need to add coconut oil to melt
  5. Cover each candy in chocolate then drizzle extra peanut butter on top and add to fridge to set for about 30 minutes

Note: Store in the fridge for up to a week or freezer for a couple of months!
