Pumpkin Energy Bites



The weather has finally turned to cooler temperatures, the leaves are starting to change colors and pumpkin spice is everywhere you turn. It’s definitely fall and we could all use a little comfort food every once in a while.

While I love pumpkin, I don’t love the preservatives and added flavors evident in most store-bought pumpkin treats. Our pumpkin energy bites are delicious and packed full of protein, folic acid, Omega -3 essential fatty acids, fiber and will satisfy your pumpkin spice cravings.

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter or other nut butter
