Every Monday on our Instagram stories, we share a super-easy, 7-ingredients-or-less recipe. Follow us for a new episode each week!

Thanksgiving doesn’t always have to be about tradition. Sure, Nana’s homemade pumpkin pie is bomb, but you know what else is? These no-bake pumpkin spice tarts. They actually taste like healthy pumpkin pie (in a good way) but take a fraction of the effort and don’t require any time in the oven (which is probably going to be occupied anyway).

Oh yeah, and they’re Paleo and vegan, so everyone at the table will be able to enjoy these babies!

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup Medjool dates, pitted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


1. Line a standard muffin tin with 8 parchment cups and sprinkle enough granola in each cup to cover the bottom. Set aside.
