These little bites are perfect for pumpkin season. Loaded with good-for-you ingredients, they will keep you energized all day long.
If you want, you can add up to a 1/2 cup of protein powder to this batter to give you an extra boost of protein. This protein is my favorite.

How to make pumpkin spice energy bites
Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the quick oats, pumpkin puree, natural peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, ground flax seeds, vanilla protein powder (this is optional) and dark chocolate chips (also optional).
I used a large wooden spoon to mix it all together, but don’t be afraid to get your hands in there and mix it all up (washing your hands beforehand of course).
Step 2: Roll dough into 1″ balls and place on a baking sheet. I covered my baking sheet with parchment paper, but this is optional.
Step 3: Place in the freezer for about 1 hour, then store in a resealable bag or airtight container in the fridge for up to a week (or in the freezer for up to a month).
Breakfast and a snack
I love munching on these when it’s an early morning, and I have to get out the door quick. They are so easy to make and taste delicious.
I also get a sugar craving everyday from about 12-4pm then again from 7-10pm. I’m always snacky. These are my most favorite thing to grab. They seriously could be dessert they are so tasty. You need these in your life.
How should I store these?
These last for about a week in the fridge and about a month in the freezer.
I like to store mine in an airtight container or a zip lock bag. I wouldn’t recommend keeping them at room temperature. I prefer mine cold, and hard.
If you keep them out they will be soft and may lose their shape.
