Made these yummy pumpkin pie protein balls with the kids today! Super simple, they loved helping, and always nice to get extra protein in them when they want a little snack!
(excuse Deacon’s super pitiful face, he has had a fever for a few days now 🙁 )
Here’s what you need:
-1 cup oat flour (I just ground up whole oats in my blender for about 30 seconds until it was a fine powder)
-1 serving vanilla protein powder (my personal favorite is Powercrunch Protowhey, but this is a personal preference! Today I used the simple truth organic vanilla whey)
-1/4 tsp salt
– rounded 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix dry ingredients together very well.
-2 heaping TB nut butter (I used peanut butter but next time I am going to try the Justins Maple Almond Butter because I feel like it would be an ah-mazing addition)
-1 TB honey
-1/4 cup pumpkin puree – you will want to add this slowly so it doesn’t get too gooey, but if it does get too gooey you can always add more oat flour!)
-3 TB chopped semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix it all together until it forms a dough, then roll into balls and pop in the fridge.
Note: these are not super sweet, so you could always add stevia if you wanted to sweeten them up a bit more! I will definitely be making them again trying the maple almond butter!!
