It’s official—I’m finally ready say summer’s over, strap on my boots and jump into fall. Bring on the apples, pumpkin, squash, lattes and cider (and red vino, too). These Pumpkin Oat Balls are the result of me being overly excited on Sunday and purchasing numerous cans of Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin—it was on the aisle endcap (gets me every time). But seriously, this is one of my fall staples. I make a batch weekly and pop them in the fridge. They are the perfect pre- and post-workout snack and are also great crumbled on top of some greek yogurt for breakfast.
As an added bonus, this popular fall ingredient has way more to offer than just its comforting fall flavor. Pumpkin is loaded with beta-carotene, which per the National Institute of Health gives a healthy boost to your vision, heart and immune system. You can learn more about the health benefits of pumpkin here. If you’re lucky, you might even have all these ingredients in your pantry right now.
