5-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Energy Balls
Make these delicious pumpkin spiced energy balls this autumn. The oats will fill you up and keep you going!
Makes 15 - 20
1 can of pumpkin puree
2 big scoops of peanut or almond butter
1½ teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice (or ½ teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger)
Pinch of salt
2 mug fulls of oats
Optional - Coconut flakes/flour for decoration
Chuck the pumpkin, nut butter, spices and salt into a bowl and mix it all together.
Next up, add the oats and give it another mix until it's all combined.
Then it's into the fridge for at least 15 minutes to chill out (and you can chill out while you're waiting too)
Finally roll the mixture into balls and that's it. You should have enough mixture to make around 20 energy bites.
And if you want to be fancy, you can also roll the balls in coconut flakes to make them look extra pretty.
