PUMPKIN PROTEIN BALLS
I have been waiting for thanksgiving to make these! YEAY, now that it’s here, im officially addicted to amazeballz!
I’M A SUCKER FOR A SWEET TREAT. YOU KNOW ME.
I found this recipe on one of my fave blogs, The fitnessista. To be perfectly honest, I really didn’t feel the need to change/add/subtract anything. The way she put this together is perfect. It’s my honor to present these to you all! I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did. They are so tasty you wouldn’t think that they were PURE protein! I’m all about that.
-4 T of dry ingredients (with protein powder, oats, coconut, almond meal or any combo of those. I used oats and coconut)
-2 T nut butter
-2 T pumpkin puree (store-bought or homemade)
-1/4 t cinnamon
-1/8 t nutmeg
-1/8 t cloves
-pinch of dried ginger
-pinch of sea salt
-splash of vanilla extract
-Sweetener of choice. I like splenda
1. Pulse the dry ingredients in the food processor until you have a powder.
2. Add in the reminding ingredients and pulse to combine.
3. Taste a little bit for spice and sweetness- adjust as needed.
4. The mixture will be very wet. Do not be afraid- just roll into balls using your hands or melon scooper and store in the fridge to harden slightly. In the fridge overnight allows the flavors to mingle and they taste even better.
