November Healthy Snacks

It’s officially the busy holiday season and we seem to be running around town trying to show homes, make holiday events and spending time with family. We are in need of some healthy snack options for when we’re on the go this month but want to keep it festive. Do you have a bunch of pumpkin puree in your pantry as we do right now? Try out these healthy pumpkin snacks and let us know what you think!

    • 1 cup oats
    • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
    • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Whisk together eggs, pumpkin, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Once combined, add in the oats, chocolate chips and baking powder. Stir well until combined and then pour into standard muffin tins.

No-Bake Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

Ingredients:

    • 2 tbsp paleo flour (or coconut flour or almond flour)
    • 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
    • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
    • 1 cup cashew butter (or any nut butter)
    • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or honey)
    • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, protein powder and pumpkin pie spice.


2. In a separate bowl, microwave cashew butter, syrup and pumpkin puree for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until it’s easy to mix the ingredients together.


3. Pour the cashew butter mix into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Freeze the dough for about 10 minutes so it hardens enough to handle.


4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the dough into about 20 balls and arrange on the baking sheet. Refrigerate until fully chilled then store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
