Pumpkin Energy Balls

These pumpkin energy balls are a portable and healthy fall snack. Bonus: they taste just like my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
Prep Time: 5 mins
chill time: 15 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Servings: 24 1 inch balls

Ingredients
 

  • 1 1/3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup Kodiak cakes mix
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg - I do *just* shy of 1/2 teaspoon. Ideally it would be about 1/3 teaspoon :)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves - I do *just* shy of 1/2 teaspoon. Ideally it would be about 1/3 teaspoon :)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Add all of the ingredients to a medium sized bowl. Mix until everything is fully combined.
  • Roll the dough into 1 - 1 1/2 inch sized balls.
  • Place the balls on a parchment lined plate or baking sheet. Place the plate in the fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes or until set.
  • Transfer the energy balls to an airtight container and store in the fridge.

Notes

If the "dough" is too sticky, place in the fridge for 15 minutes to firm up, and then continue rolling into balls. 
If too "sticky" you can also add more oats or kodiak cakes mix to the mixture. If you go this route, I suggest you add only 1 tablespoon at a time.
