Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

Pumpkin pie-inspired energy balls made from pumpkin puree, nuts, seeds, dried fruits and pumpkin spice seasoning. A great Autumnal snack with energy from whole foods, giving a whole array of vitamins and minerals to keep you fuelled. 

These are such a great snack, with a chewy texture and flavours of pumpkin pie like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. They're also super easy to make, simply blitz up the ingredients in a food processor, then roll out in balls and coat in shredded coconut for a healthy and delicious on the go pick-me-up.

These are so nutrient dense too - full of healthy fats, proteins, fibre omega 3s, vitamins and minerals. Cashews are are a great source of healthy fats, protein, fibre, magnesium and copper - which are all great for muscle functioning and repair, flaxseed is full of short chain omega 3 ALA and fibre, pumpkin puree and dried apricots full of vitamin A and the latter rich in potassium and iron as well as some calcium. Spices such as cinnamon have also been linked to less of a spike in blood sugar after eating, supported by the good fats from the nuts and seeds and beta glucans from the oats in this recipe, helping to balance your blood sugar levels, keep your cholesterol levels in a good place and keeping you fuller for longer.
