Pumpkin Energy Balls


It’s that time of year again when everything turns to pumpkin! If you’re a fan of pumpkin, then you will love these little energy balls! They are perfect to give you that extra bit of oomph that you need in the afternoon between lunch and dinner!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups gluten free oats
  • 2 tbs flax meal
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg 
  • 1 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup organic pure maple syrup 
  • 1/4 cup small dairy free chips

Directions:

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper and set aside. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Once mixed, add the remainder of the ingredients and stir. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Freeze them for about 2 hours on the sheet and then transfer to a freezer bag or airtight container.

Feel free to pack them in your gym bag as a post workout snack or as an afternoon pick me up!
