These yummy little pumpkin protein balls were submitted to us by a fan and we’re about them all year long! After all, who says it has to be Fall to enjoy pumpkin spice everything? Not us. And, with a recipe this easy you just can’t lose. We all know that bite sized snacks are the best snacks. They’re portable, packed with delicious pumpkin spice flavor (using pumpkin spice MuscleEgg), loaded with protein, and will keep you going when you get those mid-afternoon belly rumbles.
While these ingredients are things that you either have in your fridge/cupboard now or can find easily at pretty much any supermarket, you can always adjust it to your liking as well. We feel it’s pretty spot on as-is, but maybe you want to add a little nutmeg or get crazy and throw in some ground red pepper. No matter how you like it, make enough for the whole week. You’ll be glad to have a few pumpkin protein balls handy that you can pop into your mouth at work, on your drive home, after the gym, or even before bed!
