9-Ingredient Vegan, Grain-Free & Naturally Sweet Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Bites a.k.a. Legit The Healthiest Truffle You Ever Did See!

Hey guys!

<3

Wanna know how to use up a leftover can of pumpkin purée?

MAKE CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN PROTEIN BALLS!

So as you guys know, I have a SICK ADDICTION with protein balls. But I mean… at least it’s a healthy addiction, right? What’s great about these is that you can prep them days in advance (& even double your batch), refrigerate half of it & freeze the other half for when you finish the fridge-batch, YA FEEL? Basically, they’re delicious, convenient & a super clean snack!!

Now, usually I make them with oats & that gives them a very crumbly, oat-y, granola-bar-y texture, WHICH IS FREAKING AWESOME, but today, I wanted to go for something still crumbly, but at little softer, something that resembled more of a ball of chocolate… I MEAN, A TRUFFLE. YES, A TRUFFLE!!!!!

And so, that’s how these babies came to life! Instead of doing the regular oats, almond butter & some other stuff, such as collagen, protein, coconut, vanilla etc., I used the pumpkin purée, cacao powder & chocolate protein powder to obtain that truffle consistency! THEN… LOADED IT UP WITH SOME PUMPKIN SPICE DELICIOUSNESS & of course, some almond butter to hold it all together & BAM!

All I’m asking for?

One bowl.

Ten minutes of your time. 

9 ingredients!

A desire to eat clean!

A SH*TLOAD OF EXCITEMENT WHEN IT COMES TO CHOCOLATE! (Not a chocolate lover? These will change that).

NOW, without further ado, let me tell you WHY. I mean, would I really make a statement that these will change your freaking tastebuds without telling you why?

These babes are:

  • gluten-free!

  • dairy-free!
  • fudgy AF, like chocolate truffle level 100!
