No Bake Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bites

These no bake peanut butter pumpkin bites are perfect for an afternoon pick me up or a quick dessert. I like to have one or two before the gym for a little boost of energy. One ball is packed with 6g of protein and only 120 calories. How are they so low calorie when they have peanut butter in them? The secret, which most of you probably already know, is PB2.

WHAT’S PB 2?

PB2 is a nutrient-dense peanut product, also known as peanut butter powder. It has 90% less fat than traditional peanut butter and 6g of protein per serving. For two tablespoons of PB2, it’s only 60 calories versus two tablespoons of traditional peanut butter it is 190 calories. I know this is powder, but if you add water you can achieve a similar consistency of traditional peanut butter. I love to add it to my smoothies or “milkshakes” too.

NO BAKE PEANUT BUTTER PUMPKIN BITES

They’re so easy to make and all you need is a handful of ingredients that you may already have at home. The best part is, you just place them in the fridge or freezer and they’re ready to go.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Honey

Adding honey gives it that little bit of sweetness. I love adding just a bit of honey to sweeten things up. Even in smoothies. Even if you have your fruits, yogurt and almond milk, it sometimes needs a tiny bit of honey for that added sweetness. It’s more of a natural sweetener in my opinion, rather than adding just sugar to something.

2. Pumpkin Puree

Of course, the pumpkin. Let me know if you guys are sick of the pumpkin content or if you want more. I seriously am obsessed with pumpkin flavored food. Now that I think of it, it’s really only around this time of the year. I think it’s because it reminds me of the holidays, being around family and the so called “Fall” that we pretend to experience here in San Diego.

3. PB2

As stated above, PB2 is a low calorie alternative for your traditional peanut butter. While I absolutely LOVE peanut butter, this works just as well, especially when added to something else.

4. Water

5. Oats

Oats have so many great benefits to them. Studies have shown that incorporating oatmeal or oats into your diet has lowered cholesterol levels and reduced the risk of heart disease.

6. Lily’s White Chocolate Chips

I love Lily’s chocolate! It’s sweet, low calorie and sugar free. It tastes exactly like a regular chocolate chip so why not choose Lily’s?

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a bowl, add honey, pumpkin purée, water and mix.

2. To the same bowl, add 1 cup of PB2 and stir together.

3. Then, add your oats and chocolate chips. Mix until well combined.

4. I use a 2 TBSP ice cream scoop to portion out 12 even balls on parchment paper.

5. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1  hour.

6. Enjoy!

Note: You can also pop these in the freezer and take them out each day. You will need to let them thaw for about 10 minutes and they should be good to go!
