Keto-friendly Pumpkin Energy Balls
A healthy, keto-friendly, alternative snack to keep your health and fitness goals on track.
No Bake Pumpkin Energy Ball Recipe:
These No Bake Pumpkin Energy Ball are a healthy treat or snack that is loaded with nutrients to fuel the body. At the same time, they are not full of ultra-processed ingredients that we try to limit or avoid altogether like sugar, artificial flavors, or unhealthy hydrogenated oils. Learning more about functional nutrition has really motivated me on this journey in the kitchen. I find it very cool to know that food is "information" that the human body utilizes to determine how genes are activated (epigenetics). I find it empowering to know we can eat food that supports each and every part of the body.
Things I Love About This Recipe
Seeds galore! All of the seeds in this recipe are nutrient dense, providing healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, antioxidants, and minerals.
I can go on and on about cacao. It's my favorite ingredient these days and such an easy way to removed refined chocolate with the healthiest and purist form of chocolate. Cacao is full of antioxidants like flavonoids and has minerals like potassium, magnesium and iron. Theobromine is a naturally occurring compound in cacao which may stimulate the brain and may support mood and concentration.
If you choose you could add Cinnamon Bark Vitality™ essential oil. It is a concentrated and potent flavor that complements a variety of classic culinary treats. I use it often when baking desserts. Using Cinnamon Bark Vitality oil brings a warm taste and sensation to our favorite dishes. Adding vitality essential oils has been a very convenient way to add flavor to recipes while still avoiding added flavors from other unknown ingredients.
This recipe was such an easy and delicious way to skip or replace the refined sugar. Some of our desserts or treats may seem a little bitter but as you remove sugar and ultra processed ingredients, you begin to appreciate the taste of real food.
