(Pumpkin) Spice up your life!


I loved my Chocolate Chip Almond Energy Balls recipe so much that once I demolished all of the balls, I immediately had to make another batch. Having a little leftover pumpkin puree in my fridge, I couldn’t resist the urge to make pumpkin spiced balls. I mean it’s early October and I’ve already gone through a couple cans of the stuff, so I’m thinking I’m going to have it on hand quite often and this is such an easy recipe to use that excess on. Love a good food inspiring food moment. Happy snacking!
