No-Bake Pumpkin Protein Bites

Ingredients

  • ½ cup pecans (a touch more is okay to give them a slightly nuttier taste)
  • 1 cup medium-sized dates (pitted)
  • 1/3 cup organic pumpkin puree (this should be measured exact)
  • 1 scoop Sunwarrior Classic Chocolate Protein
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 ½ teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
Total Time

Prep Time

5 min

DIRECTIONS

1.Using a food processor, grind the pecans for 1–2 minutes until a fine texture is formed.

2. Combine all other ingredients and grind for a few minutes to form smooth batter (make sure large pieces of dates are not left behind: you may need to move the batter around with a spoon and then continue grinding to ensure this doesn’t happen).

3. Roll into bite-size balls (about 12–15 depending on size).

4. Store in refrigerator (and let cool/harden slightly for 30 minutes before eating any).

5. Enjoy!
