Prepare the Home-made Pumpkin Pie Spice by combining spices in a small bowl. Mix well and store in a small jar or spice container.
Combine almond butter, honey, pureed pumpkin, and vanilla in a large bowl and mix until creamy.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients: almond flour, flaxseed, sea salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Using your hands, thoroughly knead the dough. If your dough is too dry, add a teaspoon of water and continue kneading. If your dough is too wet, add a little bit more almond flour.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out the dough and roll into small one-inch balls. Place on a baking sheet or large plate.
Refrigerate bites for 30 minutes before serving.
Optional: You can dust your cookie dough bites in extra cinnamon and shredded coconut for decoration, or you can fold in crushed pecans, dark chocolate chips, or cacao nibs for a slightly different flavor and crunch.
