Pumpkin Protein Balls (No Added Sugar)

Posted on

Hi, guys!

Just popping in real quick to share a new favorite recipe in our house: Pumpkin Protein Balls! I’m actually off to a (sort of) last-minute Entyvio appointment. It was originally scheduled for Thursday, but, with our upcoming trip to San Francisco, I bumped it to next week. Unfortunately, I’m not feeling so great (lots of cramps, no energy), so I called yesterday to see if the Infusion Suite could fit me in before I left. Thankfully, they have an appointment first thing this morning, so it’ll be a mad-dash to get there. No joke, during rush hour, it’ll take me 2+ hours to get to my appointment when it normally takes me 30-40 minutes. Ughhhhh, but at least I have French toast iced coffee, Pumpkin Protein Balls, and Girls Gone WOD to keep me entertained! 🙂

Anyway, back to the Pumpkin Protein Balls… they’re a huge hit in our house right now, and I love that they’re not loaded with sugar like some recipes you find. A lot of protein balls turn into more of a dessert, which, of course, is totally fine, but these ones are the perfect healthy snack with a nice balance of protein, carbs, and fat!

Pumpkin Protein Balls (No Added Sugar)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup SFH vanilla or churro protein powder 
1/4 cup smooth nut butter
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds

Directions: Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl and then roll into 8 balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Recipe can be made with your choice of protein powder flavor and/or nut butter. If balls are too sticky, roll them in extra pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and/or protein powder. (It just depends on “smooth” your nut butter is!)
