3-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Balls [Gluten-Free]

October is here and you know what that means… pumpkin everything (#basic, anyone?)! We’re big fans of protein balls in our house – they’re easy to make, super transportable, and can be either a quick bite when you want something sweet or a healthy and yummy snack while you’re on the go!

With the onset of pumpkin season, I knew I had to put Fall’s favorite flavor to work and make these 3-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Balls!

Yep, that’s right. These babies only require 3 ingredients and come together in a matter of minutes. You guys know how much I love Simple Mills products for their clean ingredient list and easy baking instructions, but more than anything I love how versatile their mixes are. You can use them multiple ways, including protein balls. Just add their Pumpkin Muffin & Bread Mix to your favorite vanilla protein powder, and mix with coconut oil and you’ve got a super easy and delicious snack!

If you’re looking for a healthy, macro-friendly, and seasonal treat that’s packed with Fall flavor and requires almost zero prep, then these 3-Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Balls are for you! I love having them stashed in the fridge for a quick grab-and-go snack/dessert!
