We love it when an indulgence is equally as delicious as it is healthy. Our Pumpkin Pie Protein Energy Balls are packed with festive flavor and are the perfect bibte-sized pick-me-up to keep you fueled on the busiest of days. These energy balls can also satisfy cravings when you just need a little treat — but make it healthy!
The addition of Lion's Mane and Cordyceps double extract provide the brain and body energy that you need to keep you going and flowing.
Makes 20-24 energy balls
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (unsweetened)
10 dropperfuls (10mL) Lion's Mane tincture
10 dropperfuls (10mL) Cordyceps tincture
2 scoops (about 2 tablespoons) of your favorite protein powder
5-6 medjool dates, pits removed
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons almond butter (we like the crunchy kind for texture)
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, or MCT oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together and sticks. You may also combine ingredients by hand and mix until smooth. Roll the batter into bite-side (or 2-bite sized) small balls. Refrigerate to solidify. Serve and enjoy!
For a decadent garnish, roll the balls in delicious toppings (before refrigeration) such as coconut flakes, black sesame seeds, crushed pumpkin seeds, or raw cacao.
