Pumpkin, Pumpkin Everywhere


 
 
As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches suddenly pumpkin is all around us. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scented candles, pumpkin cheesecake...it's EVERYWHERE! We decided to bring you a healthy and tasty twist on a Thanksgiving day classic. While you may not be willing to pass on grandma's pumpkin pie this Turkey Day but beyond the celebration, these little balls are bites of pure heaven, filled with nutritious deliciousness. If you love pumpkin pie recipes, you are gonna LOVE these Healthy Pumpkin Pie Bites!

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup + more if needed organic all-natural peanut butter (almond or any other nut butter is fine)Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites resized 600
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Place all of the above ingredients in a large bowl and stir until a sticky batter forms.  It should be wet enough to form into balls without falling apart.  Form into 24 bite-size balls and store in the fridge until ready to eat.  

This healthy Thanksgiving recipe is easier than pie! :)

 

Bonus Tip for Healthier Eating on Thanksgiving:

Don't waste your calories on foods that you can have all year long. Fill your plate with small portions of holiday favorites that only come around once a year so you can enjoy desirable, traditional foods.
