Pumpkin balls in my new cute pumpkin ramkin 🎃 These balls were so delicious they didn’t last long! Recipe below⬇️
Pumpkin Protein Balls 🎃
•½ cup natural peanut butter (can sub with any nut/seed butter)
•½ cup pure pumpkin puree
•¼ cup VitaFiber IMO syrup*
•¾ cup large flake oats
•¼ cup oat flour
•2 Scoops (60g) LeanFit CompleteGreen protein powder
•1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl and set aside. In saucepan over medium heat melt together peanut butter and syrup *(VitaFiber syrup can be subbed with any sticky sweetener such as honey or maple syrup, macros will change) until smooth, remove from heat and stir in pumpkin puree until smooth (you can skip the heating if you have smooth enough nut butter). Add peanut butter mixture to dry ingredients and mash together with a fork until well combined. Roll into balls and place on parchment lined dish (I used a small cookie dough scoop to make my balls – so easy!). Place in fridge to harden up. I was able to get 32 balls with my small scoop, portion as you like.

Testing out the new LeanFit All-in-One protein powder. It taste very similar to their completegreen protein but also has whey in it. The ingredients are so nutritious; you can read more about it here and you can order it here on Amazon.ca if you hurry now you can save $3 for a limited time only!
We are heading on a road trip this weekend so I experimented with some protein balls and they turned out delicious! Recipe below.
•1 cup oats
•½ cup oat flour (ground oats)
•½ cup LeanFit All-in-One protein powder (whey or plant based can be subbed)
• 2 Tbsp hemp hearts
•1 Tbsp chia seeds
•2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
•Pinch Himalayan salt
•½ cup almond butter or nut butter of choice
•½ cup VitaFiber Syrup (Honey, maple syrup, agave, etc. can be subbed)
•1 tsp pure vanilla extract
•Water or milk if needed
Combine oats, oat flour, protein powder, seeds (hemp, chia and seeds are optional), salt and cinnamon in bowl and set aside. In medium saucepan over low-med heat combine nut butter, sweetener and vanilla until pliable (sometimes you can skip the heat if you have soft enough ingredients). Combine dry ingredients into nut butter mixture and knead together with hands adding water or milk if need; it should be like dough. Roll into balls or press into pan to cut bars. I made 12 orbs.
