The BEST Pumpkin Energy Balls (Paleo, Vegan)

Happy Friday!How about these little gem balls of energy for the weekend 😉. I’ve made a ton of treats like these before but I have to say, these are my favorite so far! Plus anything with Pumpkin is always a good thing. These are great to have around the house to grab for a quick treat.

Ground up nuts that you make in the amazing Pumpkin Energy Balls. I’m making these again this weekend.

PUMPKIN ENERGY BALLS (Paleo, Vegan)
 
INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds (shelled)**
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup chopped & pitted dates
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger

Note** I didn’t have pumpkin seeds so I doubled the amount of almonds and it worked well!

DIRECTIONS 
  • Add the seeds and almonds into a food processor and pulse until well chopped. Set aside.
  • Add the pumpkin, dates, oats, cinnamon, and ginger into a food process and combine, approximately 1 minute.
  • Combine the two mixtures.
  • Form the dough into 1 big ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and let sit int he freezer for 1 hour.
  • Divide dough into 1″ balls, and enjoy!
I stored mine in the freezer even after I made the smaller balls, but they would work well in the fridge too.
