Pumpkin Energy Balls with Bone Broth Protein Pumpkin Spice

By Dr. Josh Axe

August 26, 2021

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.

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.

Healthy Ingredients

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.
