Pumpkin Energy Balls with Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice
By Dr. Josh Axe
November 27, 2022
When you think of energy balls, ingredients like coconut flakes, nut butter, oats and chocolate chips probably come to mind. These pumpkin energy balls, however, incorporate the classic oats and almond butter, but change up the standard energy ball recipe by adding pumpkin puree and Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice.
Thanks to the healthy fats from the almond butter, complex carbs from the gluten-free oats and pumpkin, and protein from the Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice, these tasty snacks will help you keep you feeling energized and full. (Another great snack with Bone Broth Protein are our carrot cake bars.)
They’re great as a filling on-the-go snack, whether you follow a mostly plant-based diet, gluten-free diet, or simply a low-sugar, nutrient-dense diet. Want to sub the oats for something grain-free and lower in carbs? Try chia and flax seeds soaked in water instead, which make this recipe great for those following a Paleo or keto diet. (Try our pumpkin spice cookies or pumpkin spice muffins, too.)
Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice has a delicious fall-inspired flavor, lightly sweetened with cinnamon and stevia extract, and is gluten free and made without dairy or soy. It’s sourced from grass-fed and pasture-raised beef bone broth and provides you with the same benefits you’d get from slowly simmered bone broth.
One of the main reasons to consume BBP over other protein powders is because it contains collagen protein, which supports a healthy gut and healthy nails, skin and joints.
Almond butter is included in this pumpkin spice energy ball recipe because it’s chock full of nutrients including healthy unsaturated fats, fiber, protein, calcium and vitamin E. It also helps hold the ingredients together and gives the recipe a creamy texture and rich taste.
Pumpkin puree is super convenient to use when you buy unsweetened, canned pumpkin, plus it’s a great source of vitamin A/beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C and fiber.
To make these no-bake pumpkin energy balls, all you need to do is add the ingredients — pumpkin puree, almond butter, oats, sea salt and Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice — and mix well with a wooden spoon.
Place the bowl into the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or until the batter hardens. Remove from the freezer and, with your hands, form the mixture into balls about the size of golf balls or smaller.
Place back into the freezer or refrigerator until you're ready to snack or share with others. If in the fridge, consume within three to four days.

Energy balls can be a game-changing snack if they're not overly sweet or too lopsided with their macronutrients. These pumpkin energy balls fit the bill, with the perfect macronutrients that help produce that energy: 18 grams of healthy carbs, 11 grams of food fats and 9 grams of muscle-supporting protein. Plus these have that welcome fall flavor!
1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
½ cup unsalted almond butter
1½ cups gluten-free quick cooking oats
¼ teaspoon sea salt
4 scoops Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice
½ cup coconut flakes (optional)
Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
Put the mixture in the freezer for 30-45 minutes or until the batter hardened.
Form into balls and optionally roll in coconut flakes on a cutting board.
Store in the freezer or refrigerator until ready to eat. Eat within several days, or freeze for later use.
