Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites
These pumpkin pie bites require no food processing or cooking, just roll and enjoy. They are the perfect pumpkin flavor for an on the go energy snack.
‘Tis here, the season of pumpkin. Pumpkin recipes are showing up all over the place. In mac and cheese, in pies, in coffee, pretty much anywhere you look. I am not going to lie, this orange ingredient is really growing on me. The more versatile and easy I realize it is, I am about to add pumpkin to pretty much everything I eat.
((Side note… I am hearing there are pumpkin spice Cheerios but I am yet to find them in stores, WHERE ARE THEY?!))
There are so many different types of granola bars and energy bars out there now. Some with fantastic, simple ingredients, and some not so much. It is so important to see exactly what you are eating, because what you think is one thing could be totally something else. I am loving Kind and Lara bars especially lately. Lara bars are usually just dates and some kind of nuts in all different flavors. So simple and SO good.
If you can’t find one you like, how about whipping up these Pie Balls as a snack? They are quick and do not require a food processor or any type of baking. Just mix, ball, and store. They are ready to pop in at any time. And they are pumpkin flavored, and we’ve already discussed how you can’t go wrong with that.
