Make the coating first by pulsing the ingredients together until flour-like. Place in a small bowl and set aside.
To the food processor add the dates, cashews, peanuts, and cocoa nibs together and blend well. Once pretty smooth and not too crunchy, add vanilla, pumpkin, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Once well combined, remove from food processor and place in a bowl. Stir in rice krispies.
Roll mixture into balls and then coat the balls with the topping. Do this by just dropping each ball into the ball and coating.
