PUMPKIN ENERGY BALLS
Recipe makes: 24-32 balls. (Depending on size)

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups dry, uncooked oatmeal (I used gluten-free thick cut oats)

  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract

  • 4-6 Tbsp ground flax seeds (if ‘dough’ seems too wet, then I add more ground flax, if it’s too dry, add less…start with a smaller quantity)

  • 1 cup small chopped walnuts, chopped almonds, chopped peanuts, coconut flakes, or any combination of mix-ins that equal 1 cup total.

  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips. You could use dark chocolate/cacao pieces, or just skip them altogether.

    Instructions:

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a medium bowl until very thoroughly mixed.

  2. Roll into balls of about 1″ in diameter (mine were a bit larger).

  3. Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper & freeze one hour.

  4. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

CHIA PUDDING RECIPE


 

This recipe is so simple and easy to make, but full of amazing benefits. Chia seeds are PACKED with goodness. They are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron and calcium --- do your bagels do that ?

 

Thrown together in just a couple of minutes! I usually make this the night before and it should last a few days.

 

The thickness of the chia pudding will vary based on the kind of milk you use - I use almond or coconut milk. Remember if it’s too thick, you can add more water or if it’s too thin you can add more chia seeds and let it sit for 30 minutes or so.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups of unsweetened almond milk

½ to ¾ cup chia seeds, as needed

1-3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup to taste ( totally optional)

 

SUGGESTED TOPPINGS:

Granola

Fresh Fruit

Coconut Flakes

Cinnamon

Nuts and Seeds

Fresh fruit

A spoonful of almond butter

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Whisk the almond milk, chia seeds and sweetener together in a large bowl. Let it sit for 10 minutes and whisk again.

  2. Cover and chill in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight.

  3. Stir well before serving

  4. Take your portion for the day and have fun with your toppings

ENJOY
