Pumpkin Protein Energy Bites
This is a great recipe to make over the weekend for the week ahead. You'll be glad to have these energy bites easily accessible in the fridge as a pre- or post-workout bite, middle of the afternoon snack, or dessert.
1/4 c pumpkin puree
1/2 c nut butter (I used 1/4 c almond butter and 1/4 c sunflower seed butter)
1 tsp avocado oil
1 .5 Tbsp maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c gluten free oats
1 scoop pea protein powder (or protein powder of choice)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
(optional) dash of fine sea salt
Add all wet ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredient mixture.
Let sit for 2 minutes, then form into balls and store in the fridge for up to a week.
