I am not a big fan of pumpkin or pumpkin spice (I know) ? but these little energy bites have just the faintest hint of both that creates a warm, Fall ? flavor!
These energy bites are designed to provide ENERGY! They’re a great little snack before a workout or during a busy day!
Each energy ball provides about:
? 115 calories
? 7 G healthy fats
? 12 G of carbohydrates
? 3 G of protein
I know we usually look for protein rich snacks, but these will fuel your day in a different way! Each little ball is packed with easily digestible carbohydrates coming from dates and healthy fat coming from the pecans! Not to mention they taste like Fall ?
These are a great option to switch up snack-time and fuel any active lifestyle!
What I used:
1 cup unsalted pecans
1 cup pitted dates
2 tbsp pumpkin purée (not the pie filling, pure pumpkin)
2 tsp pumpkin spice
1 scoop IsaPro (I used Plant-Based Vanilla)
What I did:
Throw all of these ingredients into a food processor and blend until a thick, smooth paste is formed. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple times to make sure it is all getting processed! Scoop into 1.5 tbsp balls and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. This recipe makes 11 energy balls.
