Get your PSL fix in the form of these craveable two-bite treats made from chickpeas. The legumes get pureed with a little bit of canned pumpkin puree for moisture, light cream cheese and powdered almond butter for richness, brown sugar for caramel-like sweetness, and, of course, pumpkin pie spice for that irresistible seasonal flavour. The “dough” is then rolled into balls and coated in a mixture of sugar and more spice to give your palate a jolt of crunchy sweetness right away.
