These Pumpkin Spice Protein Balls are made with just 6 ingredients, in under 10 minutes and all in 1 food processor. Tender and crunchy balls that taste like fall- they’re high in protein, low in sugar, vegan & gluten free.



Optional toppings:


  1. Add all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until the ingredients form a cookie dough like consistency. 
  2. Scoop out 1 heaping tbsp of the mixture and roll them into balls. I was able to make 14 balls that weighed around 28g each. 
  3. Place them into a parchment lined tray or container. 
  4. Optional step: drizzle on some melted chocolate and top with hemp seeds (or crushed nuts/seeds of choice). 
  5. Place them into the fridge or freezer to firm up for at least 30 minutes. 
  6. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 1 month for best taste and texture. 


  • If you find the mixture is too dry, add in 1-2 tbsp of nut butter or dates. If you find the mixture to be too wet, add in more protein powder or oat flour, 1 tbsp at a time. The amount needed will depend on how soft your dates are, how oily your nut butter is and how absorbent your protein powder is.
