Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Balls

I just made a HUGE batch of these to keep in the freezer for the week!}
Swap caffeine and/or candy for THESE in the afternoons, and see how you feel.

OR, Try eating 1 or 2, a half hour before your workout…


Serving Size: 1 or 2

Recipe makes: 24-32 balls. (Depending on size)


3 cups dry, uncooked oatmeal (I used gluten-free thick cut oats)

1 cup all-natural Pumpkin Puree

1 cup all-natural Peanut butter, or Almond butter

2/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract

4-6 Tbsp ground flax seeds (if ‘dough’ seems too wet, then I add more ground flax, if it’s too dry, add less…start with a smaller quantity)

1 cup small chopped walnuts, chopped almonds, chopped peanuts, coconut flakes, or any combination of mix-ins that equal 1 cup total.

1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips. You could use dark chocolate/cacao pieces, or just skip them altogether.


Combine all ingredients together in a medium bowl until very thoroughly mixed.

Roll into balls of about 1″ in diameter (mine were a bit larger). 

Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper & freeze one hour.

Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
