If you love pumpkin spice and chocolate, you’re going to love these pumpkin protein balls. With a few simple ingredients and a little time, you’re going to have a healthy treat throughout the week. They’re very easy to make and make a great fall treat they’re also perfect to make as a meal prep snack.. I used gluten free chocolate but feel free to use whatever chocolate you prefer.

Okay, so let’s get to the best part, these are healthy, take a few minutes to put together and they don’t even require any baking time. They can actually be eaten raw, isn’t that great? If you choose to bake them, which I did this time, they only take a few minutes to bake.

All you will need is a bowl, a spoon and your ingredients. Once you’ve gathered everything, all you need to do is mix all of your ingredients together in a bowl until everything is well incorporated. If you feel that your mixture is too moist you can add more oats a tablespoon at a time. I found with this recipe, although they felt moist when mixed, once they’re stored in the fridge, they harden up a little. Once everything is well incorporated you form your dough into balls and at this point you can store them raw in the fridge in a glass container. However, if you decide to bake them, they only take 12 minutes at 350° F. How much more simple can it get?
