Is it just me or is there always just a litttttle bit of canned pumpkin puree left at the bottom of the can that ends up going bad in the fridge? This is a great way to use it up to avoid waste! Plus these little bite size treats are delicious and NUT-FREE, perfect addition to school lunches. I’m not 100% sure about USA, but in Canada we have a no nut/tree nut rule in our grade schools. For the most part, I think most schools here are nut-free zones!
When it comes to Pumpkin Spice, I’m someone who likes a mellow pumpkin spice flavour. Just a touch, and not too overpowering! So, feel free to bump up the amount of ginger, nutmeg, and clove used if you would like a stronger spice flavour.
Last thing, If you plan on enjoying these randomly throughout the week, I would recommend just keeping them in the refrigerator. They stay a nice cakey texture that way. They will keep for a long time in the freezer, but make sure you let them thaw out a little bit before eating them, as they solidify.

Note: These can be frozen, but let them thaw a little bit before eating for the best texture.
