Healthy Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls – ready in under 10 minutes and the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack!
These Healthy Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls are the perfect fall snack or breakfast on-the-go! Made with simple, clean ingredients and absolutely delicious!
If you guys have tried the pumpkin pie spice flavor of Rx bars….. these are incredibly similar (yassss…..). Just the right amount of pumpkin pie spice thrown in there along with organic pumpkin puree. It is like a little bite of fall heaven. I LOVE grabbing a few of these in the morning along with one or two hard-boiled eggs and my cold brew – I always feel energized and ready to tackle my to-do list. They are dairy-free and vegan – I know they are not Whole30, but they are part of my own personal Food Freedom. They aren’t something I have every single day, but as I change up my breakfast routine, these always make an appearance every couple weeks. They are seriously so good and so mobile 🙂
I know some people aren’t huge fans of pumpkin pie spice, but I promise it isn’t over-powering. And, as always, feel free to put less in if you are nervous about it being too much.
And yes, I rolled them in three different toppings – coconut flakes, crushed graham cracker and cocoa powder.
My personal favorite is the crushed graham cracker!
I hope you guys have a wonderful week!
