No Bake Fall Balls
We all love a good ball...(hehe)...Ball jokes and giggles aside, those little guys are a portable, delicious way to tame a sweet tooth, and if made the right way, can also offer a big nutritional bang for their buck. I put the "pumpkin spice everything" rule to work in this recipe...giving a yummy fall flair to these fast & easy no bake snacks!
½ cup peanut butter (or other nut butter of choice)
¼ cup pumpkin puree
⅛ cup organic honey
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
⅛ cup chia seeds
1 ½ cup oats
2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips (Enjoy Life used in recipe)
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
Add nut butter, pumpkin, applesauce, chia seeds, vanilla, and cinnamon to a mixing bowl, and combine well.
Add oats and mix to form a sticky batter.
Fold in chocolate chips
Using a mini ice cream scoop, or table spoon scoop a portion into your hand, roll into a ball, and repeat with remaining batter.
Batter will be sticky to work with, but finished balls can be dusted with cocoa powder, unsweetened shredded coconut, or cinnamon for a cleaner finish. Store in refrigerator.
