Weight Loss Recipes Healthy Snacks: Pumpkin Pie Protein Balls

To stay on track, I always have some fun protein-forward snack around. Preparation is key to making better-for-you choices. An hour spent on the weekend planning, prepping or making a few items makes it so much easier during the week when life gets busy. Mix it up, hit up Pinterest and create a board of ideas you want to try and you’ll be able to try something new when you find a little time to whip something up. Here’s my Pinterest page for some inspiration.

This week with all the Pumpkin Spice talk starting I modified my Apple Protein Ball recipe. These come together in no time and are perfect for tossing in a snack-sized baggie in your purse or a container in your office desk when the candy, donuts, brownies or whatever other treat someone brought to the break room are calling you.

Shelly’s Pumpkin Pie Protein Balls 

1/2 cup Dehydrated Apples (you want the crunchy dehydrated type, freeze dried not dried)
3 Dates, whole, pitted
1/4 cup Protein Powder (I used Premier Protein Vanilla 100% Whey Protein Powder)
1/4 cup Oatmeal, dry
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/4 cup Sugar Free Torani Syrup (any flavor, SF Pumpkin Spice, SF Caramel, SF Salted Caramel are my favs for this)
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
2 Tablespoon Pumpkin Puree (not Pie Filling)

Whiz everything in a mini food processor till mixture comes together like a soft dough. Roll into quarter sized balls. Makes 16-18.

Optional: You can roll them in toppings to change them up. This time I made some with chopped walnuts, pecans, and almonds, and a roll into some pumpkin spice sugar (1 teaspoon Coconut Sugar or you could use Sugar Substitute & 1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice) Other topping ideas: SF Chocolate Chips, Unsweetened Toasted Coconut, Crumbled Protein Bars.
