No-Bake Pumpkin Protein Bites

Pumpkin season has arrived! These no-bake pumpkin energy bites are easy to make, oh so tasty, and filled to the brim with protein and digestive herbs like cinnamon and ginger. These are perfect for a quick snack whether it be for school, in-between meals, or for an energy boost before a workout.


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup Flavor and Fettle Vanila Plant-Based Protein Powder 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger (optional but delicious!)
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt or to taste
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree not pie filling!
  • ¼ cup nut butter of your choice*
  • ¼ cup pitted dates or 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • Optional: ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Add cashews and oats to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped - if using dates you can add them at this stage too. 
  2. Add your cashew mixture and the rest of the ingredients to a mixing bowl, and mix until combined. The dough should stick to itself easily. 
  3. Roll into 2 tbsp, or 1 inch, balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  4. Stick in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and enjoy!


  • Store energy balls in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week or freezer for 3 months. 
  • If your dough is too dry, you can add a little more nut butter or ½ tbsp of melted coconut oil to help moisten the mixture back up. 
  • If dough is too wet, add in 1 tbsp of oats. 
  • If you happen to be allergic to nuts, don’t fret, this recipe is still for you. Substitute the ¼ cup nut butter for ¼ cup flaxseed + 4 tbsp water, but make sure to premix before it adding to your mixture.
