Pumpkin Spice Energy BallsCourse: Snacks, Healthy Treats
½ cup canned pumpkin puree*
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup (or honey)
1/2 cup toasted pecans (or walnuts)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1 tablespoon chia seeds
¼ teaspoon sea salt
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup chocolate chips
- Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until they are well combined and come together like cookie dough. You should still have some chunks of nuts. FYI: you may need to stop a few times and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
- Grab dough and then roll into balls. You should get about 12-16 balls. Place energy bites on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
- Balls should be kept in an airtight container in the freezer and will last up to 3 months. Enjoy them straight from the freezer. If they are too hard, let them sit at room temp for 5-10 minutes.
- * use the pumpkin puree that is only pumpkin, not pumpkin pie puree
