If you have tried protein balls or bars in the past and hated them, I don't blame you. Anything containing protein powder tends to be dry, bland and chalky, but not these babies ! The addition of the pumpkin puree makes these sweet, soft and the perfect fall treat to satisfy your sweet tooth and your wellness goals at the same time.
These are high in protein, fiber, antioxidants, gluten-free, added sugar-free and dairy free/vegan if you use the enjoy life chocolate chips.
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup natural nut butter
1 cup or 4 small scoops vanilla protein powder (I used this brand)
4 tbsp. almond flour
Pumpkin Spice and Cinnamon to taste
Chocolate Chunks (Enjoy Life is a great dairy free option or Hu Kitchen makes stevia (no sugar sweetened chunks)
Mix everything together in a bowl, roll into balls and enjoy =)
