Pumpkin Protein Balls

Pumpkin Protein Balls
1 can of pumpkin puree (organic).
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter or almond butter (just peanuts and salt – I use Smuckers organic)
1/4 cup of honey or agave
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of rolled oats (I use old fashioned oats)
A pinch of salt. 1-2 scoops of your protein of choice (suggestion to stick with vanilla or chocolate to not take away from the deliciousness of these)
1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips – dairy free (I use the enjoy! brand)
**You can add unsweetened shredded coconuts for added texture

Pumpkin Protein Balls
