In the past few days it's been pretty cold and I've been in the mood of making my own kind of 'Winter cookies'. The result were these healthy & delicious #nobake Pumpkin Spice Protein Balls - packed with peanut butter and lots of Christmas spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove. I have to say they turned out really well and I can't stop snacking on them. That's why I wanted to share the recipe with you :)
PUMPKIN SPICE PROTEIN BALLS
3 super ripe bananas
10 Medjool dates
300g peanut butter (I used the pumpkin spice peanut butter below)
150g PB protein powder (I used the organic PB powder below)
100g pumpkin seeds
150g glutenfree oats
Extra pumpkin spice (optional)
HOW TO MAKE IT:
1. Mix the bananas, Medjool dates and peanut butter in a blender till it becomes a doughy texture (if you don't have a Vitamix on hand you can use a hand blender instead).
2. Transfer the PB powder, pumpkin seeds and oats into the batter and mix thoroughly with your hands. Add some extra pumpkin spice if you like.
3. Once the batter has transformed into a thick doughy texture refrigerate for 30 minutes before forming into balls.
STORAGE: The Pumpkin Spice Protein Balls can be stored in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer up to 4 weeks.
Enjoy this simple delicious recipe!!
NOTE: The amount of ingredients makes a huge jar of balls as I like to store them in the fridge or freezer. But you can also do a smaller amount by just using half of the ingredients.
