Yes, I am your typical Jersey girl that loves everything pumpkin! Plus everything bite-sized! I have made several recipes that are bite-sized so they are easy to grab and go snacks – as we are all always on the go these days! So I upgraded my fit bites to add in pumpkin to make……Pumpkin Fall Balls!
Just a few simple ingredients are all that is needed for these quick energy bites. Which are perfect for pre/post workout snacks or anytime snacks really. If you bake with me often here is all you need;
Of course you can switch up the ingredients to your liking, think flax seeds, other nut butter, pumpkin seeds…… you get the drift!

Depending on the size of the balls that you make you can get up to 14 – be mindful of the size for as these are calorie dense – but still a healthy treat! I keep them in the fridge and we all grab and eat them as we feel the need to. I throw them in my kid’s lunch box too!
