Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites
Anyone who knows me knows that pumpkin is one of my all time favorite foods; I’m OBSESSED! These protein bites taste like rolled up pumpkin pie filling, but each serving also has almost 7 grams of protein! They are totally vegan, gluten free, and super easy to make. The key is to not add extra pumpkin because you think they are too dry. Just food process a little longer. Then stick in the fridge to harden the dough a little. My kids love these, and they are made from carrots pumpkin, raisins, nuts and flax!
