I have a bit of an obsession with protein bites.
These days I won’t eat a bar that’s loaded with ingredients I don’t recognize, so I stock my pantry with Larabars and Kind Bars, but they can get expensive. So most weeks I set up shop on Sunday afternoon and prep some healthy bars & bites to have on hand for snacks on-the-go.
I came up with this recipe last week in attempt to use some leftover pumpkin after making my homemade pumpkin spice latte.
These have a texture much like pumpkin pie and are great to have on hand when you’re craving something sweet.
Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites
1 1/4 cup raw almonds
1/3 cup dates
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoon oats (I used quick-cooking)
2 tablespoons hemp hearts
