Tis’ the season for all things Pumpkin! Instead of diving into the pumpkin bread with the pumpkin spice latte like I want it, I’m going to keep it clean and healthy with these Pumpkin Energy Bites and a Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Pumpkin Energy Bites
12 oz of pumpkin purée (7/8 of the can)
4 cups oats (I use gluten free)
3/4 cup peanut-butter
2/3 cup honey
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I use enjoy life chips)
1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
2. Use a 1 inch ice cream scooper or portion out a 1 inch in diameter ball. Roll till smooth.
3. Enjoy!!! These last 1 week in the fridge or 2 weeks in the freezer. Enjoy as a healthy snack, breakfast or dessert!
If you’re following the 21 day fix, Country Heat or Beachbody Container system 2 bites counts as 1 yellow, 1 tsp and 1 blue. I also wouldn’t eat these while trying to lose weight – these are on the maintenance plan in my opinion 🙂
