- ¾ cup all-natural nut butter (I like Justin’s almond butter)
- ¼ cup pure pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup raw honey
- ¾ cup dry old-fashioned rolled oats
- 3 scoops Vanilla Shakeology
- ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips (I like Lilly’s chocolate chips)
- 12 small pretzel sticks, each broken into 2 pieces
Combine nut butter, pumpkin, honey, oats, Shakeology, and cinnamon in a medium bowl; mix well with clean hands or a rubber spatula.
Shape mixture into twenty four walnut size balls.
Arrange chocolate chips in protein balls to resemble jack-o’-lantern faces. Stick a pretzel piece into the top of each protein ball to make a stem.
Place in airtight container; refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
