- 1 cup gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 cup MariGold Pumpkin Spice Whey Isolate Protein Powder
- 1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter (unsweetened and no added oils)
- 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
- 2 tablespoons honey or a sugar-free sweetener (adjust to taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts (such as almonds, walnuts, or pecans)
- 1/4 cup Flax or Chia Seeds
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (use sugar-free for a lower-sugar option)
- Unsweetened shredded coconut for rolling (optional)
NOTE: You can also use MariGold Creamy Vanilla Whey Isolate Protein Powder and add 1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice!
- Mix Dry Ingredients – In a mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats and pumpkin spice-flavored whey isolate protein powder.
- Combine Wet Ingredients – In a separate bowl, mix together the almond or peanut butter, pumpkin puree, honey or sweetener, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until the mixture is well combined.
- Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures – Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. The mixture should be sticky and hold together.
- Shape into Bites – Using clean hands, take small portions of the mixture and roll them into bite-sized balls. If desired, roll the bites in unsweetened shredded coconut for added texture and flavor.
- Chill and Set – Place the pumpkin spice protein bites on a tray or plate lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes to help them set.
