Ingredients

These delicious pumpkin energy bites taste just like pumpkin pie! For these little treats you will need:

  • pecans
  • ground flax seed
  • pumpkin puree
  • old fashioned oats- use gluten free if desired.
  • vanilla protein powder- whey or vegan protein will both work.
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground ginger
  • ground nutmeg
  • unsweetened coconut flakes

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

This recipe couldn’t be more simple. First, combine all ingredients except for the coconut in the food processor. Blend until it is almost smooth but still has some texture. The mixture will be thick and may need to be stirred a couple of times to get it combined evenly.

Next, place the mixture in the refrigerator and allow it to chill. This step makes the mixture easier to handle and roll into balls. Then, once the energy bite mixture is more firm, roll into rounded tablespoon-sized balls and roll in coconut. The recipe should yield about 18-20 bites.

Store the energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. These could also be frozen for up to 30 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to store these in the refrigerator?

Yes! If these are left at room temperature they will spoil quickly. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days or freeze for up to 30 days.

Are these gluten free?

These can be made gluten free by using gluten free oats. Also, check the protein powder to be sure that it is free from gluten containing ingredients.

Can I use pumpkin pie spice seasoning instead?

Of course, substitute the cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger for pumpkin pie spice seasoning instead.
