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

Ingredients:

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

  • 1 cup all-natural Pumpkin Puree

  • 1 cup all-natural Peanut butter, or Almond butter

  • 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.

  • 1 scoop of your favorite VEGAN protein powder


    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.
