kitchen fit tip of the month – pumpkin pie power

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin cookies. Yes, we love them too, but you can’t—or shouldn’t—eat them all the time. For a festive and delicious energy blast, try these Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites! They make a great on-the-go snack for the whole family. (recipe credit to Dessert with Benefits)

 

You’ll need the following:

  • 1 cup of pure pumpkin puree
  • a half cup of almond butter
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract or vanilla flavored stevia extract
  • 2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • a quarter tsp of salt
  • 1 cup of quinoa flakes
  • a half cup of cooking oats

 

First, add the pumpkin, almond butter, extract, cinnamon, and salt, and mix on low speed or by hand. While you’re mixing, add the quinoa and oats. Scrape the outside of the bowl down and mix one more time. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Finally, portion out the batter into cookie shaped sizes, and roll them into balls. Serve immediately or cover and put them in the fridge for later!
