    Makes 12-14 energy balls



    120g oats

    1 tbsp chia seeds

    35g ground flaxseed

    100g unsalted nut butter (almond or cashew work well)

    60g cooked, mashed pumpkin (you can use butternut squash too)

    2 tbsp honey

    1 tsp vanilla extract

    1 tsp ground cinnamon

    2 tsp mixed spice

    20-30g small, dark chocolate chips (optional)



    1. Blend together the oats, chia, flax and spices for 5 seconds. You can also mix ingredients with a spoon if you prefer the oats to remain whole.
    2. Add the honey, pumpkin, vanilla and nut butter and blend for 5 more seconds.
    3. Mix in the chocolate chips (if you are using them).
    4. Roll the mixture into balls and keep in a container in the fridge for up to 6 days.
    5. Enjoy!
