Pumpkin Protein Balls
These protein balls are super easy, and fun for the kids to make. All the ingredients go into one bowl, mix it up, and they're ready to roll.
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut 1/4 for rolling the balls in
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- dash salt
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup cashew butter
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
In a medium bowl add the dry ingredients, and mix well.
Next add the pumpkin, cashew butter, and maple syrup. Mix together with a fork until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Place in refrigerator for about 40 minutes. This will make the mixture cold, and easy to roll into balls.
Pour shredded coconut into a bowl, and set aside.
Remove from refrigerator. Measure 3/4 tablespoon of mixture, and roll them with your hands into the balls.
Take the formed balls and drop them in the bowl of shredded coconut, (about 5 at a time). cover them in the coconut, then remove and place on a plate.
Enjoy right away!! Refrigerate the remainder 3-5 days, or up to 3 months in the freezer.
