I love making energy balls because they're a quick grab-n-go snack that is nutrient dense.  They're also really small so they're easy to bring on the go in a ziplock in my purse or whatever. They're a great snack for before working out because they don't make you really full but they reboost you/give you energy. I thought that it'd be a good idea to put a fall twist on them and I'm so glad that I did! These will not disappoint. 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup pumpkin purée

1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes 

1 cup of unsweetened, creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup honey

4 T pure maple syrup

2 t vanilla extract

1 1/2 t cinnamon

1/2 t pumpkin pie spice

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Wet your hands with a little bit of water and then roll the mixture into 1.5 inch round balls.

Store the energy balls in an airtight container/Tupperware in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
