Description

Pumpkin Spice Power Balls are quick and easy to make and are a healthy snack or dessert. They’re packed with healthy fats, protein, fiber and of course pumpkin spice.

In this recipe, I use canned pumpkin puree since it is easy, but you can use fresh home-made pumpkin puree as well. When buying canned pumpkin puree make sure you buy unsweetened pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling. For the oats, I recommend quick cook oats since it makes for a smoother power ball. So make sure you choose gluten-free oats. If the oats also are organic, even better.

I have made these Pumpkin Spice Power Balls both by hand in a stainless steel bowl and wooden spoon, and in my stand mixer equipped by a silicone edge beater.
