How to Make Oatmeal Energy Balls with Pumpkin and Spice

Energy Balls

These little morsels, often called power balls because they are full of fuel for your body, are also known as energy bites. The two-bite treats are filled with powerful ingredients like oats, peanut butter and usually protein powders — and don’t need any baking. These little treats are great to help boost your energy the right way, with ingredients that are great for your body!

[What You Need]

  • 2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice (I used my DIY version)
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup (do NOT try to substitute the brown rice syrup)
  • pinch of sea salt

<Let’s Make It>

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until they come together in a sticky ball.
  2. Wet hands under water and then roll dough into 16 balls.
  3. Place in freezer for 15 minutes before storing in the refrigerator, for up to 1 week.
