EASY Vegan Recipes: Pumpkin Spice Protein Balls



Hey guys! Wanted to share a new Vegan recipe that’s super easy to make! All you need are the ingredients and a food processor (a blender can work too). It is made up of healthy protein, carbs, fats, and fiber- the essential macros for any nutritious diet. Whether you are a college student or just live a busy lifestyle, these are a great on-the-go option! Refridgerate them to eat for a quick breakfast, throughout the day as a healthy treat or even as a dessert option! Thanks for watching and enjoy the recipe!

MAIN INGREDIENTS (all organic):
•10-15 Deglet/Medjool Dates (the glue, fiber, contain SO many vitamins + minerals)
•2 Carrots Chopped (adds a sweet taste + healthy benefits)
•1 Cup Rolled Oats (great source of carbs + fiber)
•1 & 1/2 Cups Walnuts (rich in omega-3 fatty acids (ALA) + antioxidants + vitamins

THE PROTEIN:
•3 Scoops Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder (pumpkin seeds are small but have the highest ratio of plant protein per gram)

THE FLAVORING:
•1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon (antioxidants, one of the healthiest spices on the planet)
•1/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger (Ginger contains gingerol, a substance with powerful medicinal properties)
•1 Tablespoon Diced Orange Peel (loaded with Vitamin C, as well as vitamin A, enzymes, fiber, and pectin)
•1 + 1/2 Cup Pulsed Coconut Chips (optional: adds a light coconut flavor)

POWDER COATING:
Mixture of pulsed Coconut Flakes & Pumpkin Protein Powder

SUBSTITUTIONS & TIPS:
•If you don’t want to use dates for this recipe, try raisins, cranberries, prunes, apricots, dried pineapple, dried cherries, etc.

Tip: Dates create a sticky consistency which works really well for this recipe.

•Peanut butter, almond butter, etc. also can work well for this recipe.

Tip: The stickier the consistency the better.

•If you don’t like walnuts, you can use pecans, almonds, or pine nuts.

Tip: Nuts are a healthy fat that will not only add to the flavor but also provide some healthy benefits.

•If you are crazy and don’t like rolled oats, try some ground flaxseed, chia seed as healthy additions to this recipe. (just use rolled oats trust me)

Tip: Oats are a great source of fiber, which is an essential part of healthy living!

•If you love chocolate, throw some cacao powder, dark chocolate pieces, or some chocolate protein into this recipe instead!

Tip: I would definitely use a protein powder if you can to add the flavor or chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, etc. This way you can still get the added flavor but also get the added protein as well!

    Those look incredible and terribly clever. If I could offer some helpfulness, you might want to practice curling your fingertips under your knuckles on the hand that's stabilizing the food that you're chopping with a chef's knife. Could save you from chopping off more than you want to…..

  21. This looks so good! One thing I love about your recipes is you incorporate so many different foods into them that you would never think of adding. Thanks for another great recipe, can't wait to try it.
