Ingredients

1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds)
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in water for 10 minutes

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup egg-white protein powder

Preparation

Add pecans and pepitas to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until ground. Add soaked dates, pumpkin purée, coconut, pumpkin pie spice, protein powder and salt, and pulse until the mixture comes together in a ball. Remove with a spatula and place in a bowl; chill for 20-25 minutes.

Once chilled, use a 1-inch scoop to scoop the mixture into a plate of coconut flakes. Roll the pumpkin pie protein bites in coconut flakes and serve.
