Double Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Energy Balls

Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Energy Balls

I see you all raving about your Pumpkin Spice Lattes!!! Don’t worry, I am an addict to ALL THINGS PUMPKIN!!! These bad boys can be whipped up for an amazing breakfast, lunch or snack. My kids love them!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups dry, uncooked oatmeal (I used gluten-free thick cut oats)
  • 15 oz. all-natural Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup all-natural Peanut butter, or Almond butter
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/4 t. ginger, 1/4 t. nutmeg)
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop Chocolate, Vanilla or Cafe Latte (or Vegan Chocolate) Shakeology
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. You could use dark chocolate/cacao pieces, or just skip the chocolate if you wish.

Directions:

  1. Thoroughly combine all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Roll into balls of about 1″ in diameter (mine were a bit larger). If they are too wet to roll then add a little more oats until it becomes workable. I used a cookie scoop to get a nice even ball.
  3. Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper & freeze one hour.
  4. Store in an airtight container and keep frozen for 2 weeks, or refrigerated for up to 1 week.
