Jack O’Lantern Protein Balls
These protein balls feature a delicious combination of peanut butter, pumpkin, cinnamon, and Vanilla Shakeology. It’s the perfect balance of satisfying protein, with fall flavors to make you swoon. The peanut butter can be swapped for almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower seed butter (to make it nut free). And if you happen to have “pumpkin pie spice” on hand for the holidays, you could swap it for the cinnamon.
Mini chocolate chips and pretzels transform these treats into mini Jack-o’-Lanterns. If you can’t track down chocolate chips or pretzels, or simply want to skip that step, they’ll still be delicious without them.
