No-Bake Pumpkin Energy Bites + Balls | Fall Recipe | Pre-Workout Snack

It’s official, I’m finally ready say summer’s over, strap on my boots and jump into fall. And after spending a girls weekend at Aamodt’s Apple Farm and St. Croix Vineyards in Stillwater, MN I’m so excited about fall. Bring on the apples, pumpkin, squash, lattes and cider {and red vino too}.

These no-bake pumpkin energy bites are the result of me being overly excited on Sunday and purchasing numerous cans of organic pumpkin…it was on the isle end cap {gets me every time}.

But seriously this is one of my fall staples, I make a batch weekly and pop them in the fridge. They are the perfect pre-and-post workout snack; also great crumbled on top of some greek yogurt for breakfast.

Pumpkin is loaded with beta-carotene, which per the national institute of health gives a healthy boost to your vision, heart and immune system {learn more about the health benefits of pumpkin here}.

If you’re lucky you might even have all these ingredients in your pantry right now…
