Description

These Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites have tons of healthy fats, protein, and of course, delicious pumpkin spice flavor! These Vegan, Paleo, Keto, and Whole30-friendly energy balls will keep you going when hunger hits.


Ingredients

1 cup raw pecans
⅓ cup nut butter of choice (almond, cashew, and pecan butter are all good choices)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons flax meal
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
3 dates, optional (replace with 2 tablespoons monk fruit maple syrup or leave out for keto)
2 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
½ teaspoon vanilla bean powder or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup finely chopped pecans optional

Instructions

In the bowl of a food processor, combine all of the ingredients except for the ¼ cup pecans. Pulse for about 1 to 2 minutes or until the mixture starts to break down. It will first become powdery and will stick together, but still be crumbly. Keep processing until the oils start to release a bit and the mixture sticks together easily – just be careful not to over process or you’ll have nut butter. 
Use a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon scoop to divide the mixture into equal pieces. Use your hands to roll into balls and place on a plate.
If desired, place the ¼ cup finely chopped pecans in a small bowl. Roll each ball into the finely chopped pecans, pressing them in slightly so they stick.
Store in an airtight container zip-top bag in the refrigerator or freezer.
