Pumpkin Protein Bites

Pumpkin Protein Bites

What you need 1 cup raw almonds 3/4 cup rolled oats 7 ounces Grandma Hoerner’s Pumpkin Butter 1 serving vanilla-plant-based protein powder (about 35 grams) 4 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds 2 tablespoons mini dairy-free chocolate chips DIRECTIONS 1. Add the almonds, oats, pumpkin butter, and protein powder to the food processor. Turn on until a choppy dough forms, several minutes. 2. Add 2 tablespoons of the raw pumpkin seeds, and pulse until combined so the pumpkin seeds remain a little coarse. The dough will be slightly sticky. 3. In a small food processor or NutriBullet, quickly chop the remaining 2 tablespoons of pumpkins seeds with the chocolate chips — this only takes 1 second; you want it chopped, not powdery. Pour mixture into a small bowl. 4. Roll dough into 20 balls, roll each in the pumpkin seed and chocolate chip topping, and place on a clean cookie sheet. 5. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to set. Store uneaten balls in an airtight container in the fridge. **This recipe can easily be made gluten free as long as your oats and protein powder are also gluten free. Learn More
