These little energy balls are the perfect mid afternoon pick me up. They satisfy that need for something sweet without the energy crash of other sugary sweets. —Lindsay Pleskot
What You'll Need
pumpkin puree, canned
dark chocolate chips or shaved dark chocolate
Place all ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Use a fork to mix until well combined and a thick paste is formed. * Note: these have a softer texture than some other energy balls, I prefer them like this but if you’d like a firmer texture, add an additional 1/4 c. of oats to a food processor and blend until a chunky flour like consistency forms. Add this to the mixture and combine well.
Roll into 20 evenly sized balls and place them in an airtight container or onto a plate and cover with saran wrap when finished.
Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set. Enjoy immediately or store in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week!
