Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites

These pumped up protein bites combine a lil’ flavor of summer with a taste of fall! The sweet coconut + the spice from pumpin just might be my new favorite flavor combo! These protein bites are the perfect on the go snack to keep you full + satisfy your sweet tooth.! They can be also stored in the freezer if you make a large batch to snack on throughout the week. Yum!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup Nuts of Choice [I used almonds, but pecans or walnuts would be great, too!]
  • 0.5 cup Pitted Dates
  • 8 tbsp Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 8 tbsp Pumpkin Spice Protein
  • 4 tbsp Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 1.5 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
    *optional — you can roll the balls into chopped nuts or coconut flakes!

DIRECTIONS

#1] In a blender or a food processor blend the nuts until finely chopped. Add in the dates + blend until a sticky dough forms. Add in the remaining ingredients + blend into evenly combined! The mixture will be fairly sticky, so scoop it into a bowl  place in the fridge to cool for a few minutes.
#2] Once the dough has cooled a bit you can begin rolling it into balls. I *highly* recommend rolling the protein bites in extra coconut flakes! Enjoy now or store them in the fridge to enjoy later! Can’t wait to hear what you guys think!

GIFT IDEA // Tie a few in a bow + it makes a lil’ sweet treat for someone special : )
