Maybe it was the snow this morning, or maybe it was the 5 cans of pumpkin sitting in my pantry that needed to be used. I’m not sure why, but for some reason, I was craving pumpkin today. I decided to whip up these yummy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oat Balls to keep it clean and still satisfy my sweet tooth. I have my awesome Beachbody Team, FIERCELY FIT DYNASTY to thank for this recipe! . Any recipe that involves dumping all ingredients in a bowl and mixing is a win for me. Enjoy these clean sweet treats that take about 20 minutes to make, start to finish!
This recipe calls for crushed walnuts. I used this great KitchenAid hand chopper that my Mom got me for Christmas to quickly chop the large walnuts I had in my pantry.
1 c canned 100% pumpkin
3 c oats
4 T pure maple syrup
1 c crushed walnuts
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
1 t pure vanilla extract
1 T flax seeds
1/2 c dark chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
Roll balls about 1” in diameter.
Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
I found these tasted best once they had been chilled for a little while.
For Hope and Health,
