Pumpkin Protein Balls

We love protein balls around here. It was time for a new flavor profile, so today I made these pumpkin protein balls. Ahhhhhh, you are going to love them!

I put all the ingredients into a big mixing bowl:

1 cup protein powder ( ITP, SFH, or Progenex Vanilla would be great or any other flavor that would make sense, like Cinnamon Roll )
1/2  cup coconut oil, not melted (, my favorite)
2 TBSP raw honey
2 TBSP raw almond butter
2 cups unsweetened coconut chips (the chunky coconut from
1/2  cup pumpkin
2 TBSP coconut milk (or organic milk)
1 TBSP pumpkin pie spice

I stirred them up with a wooden spoon and scooped them out onto parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Scooping with a cookie scoop made this job quick and easy, AND they all come out the same size.

I popped them into the freezer for after dinner. Pumpkin is a nutritional powerhouse, like Ger!

       Beautiful ingredients make beautiful food. Eat real foods. You'll be stronger and healthier.
