Pumpkin Spice Keto Balls- With a Giveaway 8


Happy, happy, happy September friends. As many of you know, fall is undeniably my favorite time of year and I can get a little over zealous with my love for it. But no apologies. Pumpkin spice is life. Layers are flattering. School is cool after a long summer and hey well….I’m on a mission to create recipes with all the fall flavors, without sabotaging healthy eating.

I was recently challenged by Barleans (I LOVE that company!) to create a recipe featuring their coconut oil and their Energy Blend, which packs an awesome amount of flax, coconut, panax and ginseng. My sister had recently made Keto-friendly Pumpkin Spice balls and so what did I do? Well, I messaged her and pretty much asked for her recipe. She’s a fantastic cook and I knew she’d already nailed this, so why re-create the wheel, when it’s already perfect? Love you, sister!
These balls are low carb, high in healthy fats and they pop with those fall flavors so many of us are craving.The recipe ended up making about 2 dozen small balls. I ate a few, put a few on a plate in the fridge to feed the hubs and kids, and then the rest went into this stainless steel lunch box, from LunchBots. How cute is this?! There’s NO need to worry about chemicals with this sweet baby. It’s all good, perfectly adorable and I love the compartments inside of it!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup Barleans Coconut Oil
  2. 1 cup pumpkin
  3. 2 tsp. pumpkin spice
  4. 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  5. dash of salt
  6. 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used Whey)
  7. 1/2 cup Barleans Energy blend, mixed with 1 tsp. pumpkin spice for coating
Instructions
  1. In a medium sized glass bowl, melt coconut oil.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Put in the fridge for about a half hour to firm.
  4. Stir together Barleans Energy Blend, with a little pumpkin spice seasoning.
  5. Form the mixture into balls and roll in the Energy Blend to coat.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Notes
  1. Each ball has approximately 1-3 net carbs, depending on what protein powder you use. Other good options would be to add crushed walnuts or butter.

    As much as I’m loving summer and not wanting it to end, I’m really looking forward to having hot apple cider with sliced apples, oranges and cinnamon sticks warm in my crockpot all day long. My whole house smells like fall! I love the cold air outside on a sunny crisp day and drinking a cup of cider to warm me up!

    I am having s really hard time letting go of summer this year, and I don’t know why! But I’ll try to get into fall with fall recipes soon- as soon as it cools down a bit anyway. And I’m so happy our boys are in class together this year!!

    Oh my… I love so many things about fall. The colors of the leaves, the crisp air, cozying up, pumpkin everything, warm comfort foods…the list goes on. I’m looking forward to doing some fall hikes, having an overdue family photo shoot, and going to the pumpkin patch, among other things.

    I love fall for the crisp mornings, the beautiful colors, and my birthday is in the middle of it! I’m looking forward to getting back to my morning walks.

    I love the dependability that comes with getting back into the routines that fall brings. For my family of 6, that looks like homeschool, public school, (final!) year of grad school, soccer, and teen council (for my 17 year old). As much as I love the freedom and wildness of the summer months, this dependability on schedule and routine is comforting.
