Pumpkin Pie Protein Bombs: The Inspiration We

We are coming up on the season of sweets! From Halloween to the New Year, it seems like the temptations and treats are EVERYWHERE! If you are anything like me, you don't want to miss out on seasonal snacks...but indulging a little too much doesn't seem to flatter all of those fall fitness goals. This simple pumpkin pie protein bomb recipe sits nicely in your fridge for a go-to grab when those cravings hit. All you need for this homemade delight is:

  • one pumpkin to your taste
  • Maple Syrup or Agave

A little pumpkin, a little protein...just in time for fall, but a great treat through the holidays too. Just because you’re eating cleaner, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the pumpkin flavor craze.

I crafted this full flavor pumpkin pie protein bombs recipe so you can enjoy it as a pre/post-workout snack or a healthy option to nibble with your morning coffee. Don’t worry, the kids will love them too!
