Pumpkin Pie Protein Bombs: The Inspiration

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
  • Sunflower Butter
  • Peanut Butter
  • Steel Cut Oats
  • Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Spice, sea salt, cinnamon, stevia mixture OR chopped nuts
  • Vanilla Protein Powder

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. Since an average slice of pumpkin pie comes in over 320 calories, these bite-size wonders are the bomb: With cleaner ingredients, this pumpkin pie protein bomb recipe comes in nearly 50 calories less per serving!
