Pumpkin Pie Cookie Dough Balls…need I even say more?
If you love pumpkin and you love chocolate chip cookie dough, then you’re going to love these protein and fiber filled balls of bliss. And the best part about these balls (besides for how they taste) is how easy they are to make, with just six ingredients.
I decided to use oat flour to make these balls because oats are high in both fiber and protein, but also because of the chewy texture oat flour lends. Oat flour isn’t hard to make at all. Just blend rolled oats in a food processor or high speed blender until the oats are finely ground (see pic below).
I love one of these Pumpkin Pie Cookie Dough Balls for a snack around 3:30 or 4:00 pm. It’s just enough to tide you over and keep you energized until dinner, but still light enough that you won’t feel too full.
Pumpkin Pie Cookie Dough Balls
[Makes 10 – 12 balls]
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond butter (I like to use crunchy but creamy works, too)
3 Tablespoons honey
1 scoop vanilla collagen protein
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
3 Tablespoons chocolate chips
Make the oats into oat flour by processing them in a food processor or blender until it’s fine like flour.
Mix the almond butter and honey together in a large bowl. Add the oatmeal flour, collagen and pumpkin pie spice. Mix all the ingredients together until fully combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix again.
Roll the mixture into uniform-sized balls. Place them on a plate or tray and place them into the refrigerator to set up for about 20 minutes. Store the balls covered in the refrigerator.
