Happiness is this, right here. These little gooey, delicious, chocolatey, protein packed, no bake, no mess, under 10 minute, blissful balls of goodness. They are jam packed with a special ingredient I wait the entire year for… any guesses?… that’s right you said it! common’ now a little louder so I can hear you…. PUMPKIN! 🙂 she’s here folks… and she’s here to stay!
I don’t know about you guys but when that cool fall breeze finally hits all I think about is Pumpkin everything! I mean have you ever thought about how many things you can enjoy pumpkin in? From hot drinks, to cold smoothies, to delicious home cooked pies, loaves, muffins, oatmeals, cookies, cupcakes, pancakes, protein bars, energy balls, um what else… hmmm… oh! how about hearty meals, like stews, soups, lasagna’s, casseroles, and pasta’s. And don’t you dare throw away those seeds! They are packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and numerous health promoting antioxidants.
I always find myself wanting to create new healthy snack ideas especially when new seasons come and go. As I am a very active 29 year old woman who is constantly on the go I am always in need for an extra energy boost at certain times throughout the day.
With my excitement and eagerness to open up my samples of “Clean Lean Protein” Premium European Golden Pea Protein by Nuzest I immediately wanted to pair it up with my can of pumpkin puree and create these delicious golden blissballs.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Nuzest and are looking for an all natural source of protein, free from common allergens, look no further. Nuzest is 100% vegetable, sourced from European Golden Peas. Clean Lean Protein has up to 90% protein content, is low in carbohydrates and easy to digest, so you can enjoy it daily! Super-charged with all the essential amino acids your body needs and a pH of 7.8 (alkaline), Clean Lean Protein is the ultimate supplement for those who lead healthy lifestyles and are discerning about what they put in their body.
No gluten, dairy or soy GMOs or artificial preservatives. It’s 100% vegetable, low in carbohydrates and high in digestible protein. I suggest the vanilla flavour!
Because this is my first attempt at making these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Energy Balls I would suggest as well using a plant-based protein if you don’t have Nuzest then something similar. Not all protein powders absorb equally, so you may need to add more old fashioned oats if you find the mixture too wet.
These gluten-free, vegan, clean-eating, low fat, low calorie Energy Balls are where its at this fall season! So take 10 minutes out of your day to make a batch or two, store extra’s in the freezer for those crazy busy days and take them with you to boost your energy and fill your tummies with a nutritious on-the-go snack!
