Raw Vegan Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

Today’s feature for the Pumpkin and Pinterest series is Raw Paleo Vegan Pumpkin Energy Balls from Lightly Living. These were so yum, and so simple to make. I have to admit, these are a treat just for mommy. ūüôā

 


This recipe was very simple to make.

  • I only made a few changes.
  • I swapped the pecans for almonds
  • I added 1 tablespoon of Maca powder
  • I added 1/4 cup of craisins to give it a bit of tartness (and it goes perfectly with pumpkin).

 

That is all, and they turned out beautifully. The texture was a cross between cookie dough and a Lara bar.  The pumpkin gives the end treat a creamy and smooth texture.  Smoother than a cookie dough, but less firm than a Lara Bar.
