Wow. Here's a MUST-MAKE for those who love licking the spoon when making cookie/cake batter. And for all of the pumpkin spice fanatics!
Perfect for a little seasonal snack on the go or a (healthier) sweet tooth fix this Halloween and holiday season. Like a protein bar and cookie dough had a baby.
Make a couple of batches and store them in the freezer (warning: you’ll want to make 1000). Can’t you tell I love pumpkin season?
Let’s get to the recipe already!
2 cups oat flour (can be made by blending quick cook oats in a food processor)
1/3 cup cashew butter (I used Monki)
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 cup pumpkin purée (click here if you wanna do it homemade)
2 scoops VANILLA protein powder (I used Orgain)
1 tablespoon water
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons crushed vegan white chocolate (my fav is by iChoc) or macadamia nuts
Mix all ingredients together except the crushed white chocolate/macadamia nuts until well-combined.
Fold in the white chocolate/nuts.
Scoop out tablespoon-sized balls of dough and shape them however you'd like, or scoop with an ice cream scooper. For a more firm consistency, let chill overnight or for 2-3 hours in the fridge.
You can add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract if you only have plain (non-vanilla) protein powder.
If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice where you live, use my Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup in place of the syrup in this recipe.
These bites can be stored in the fridge or freezer!
