Pumpkin Energy Balls

I’m all for quick bites, and it’s a bonus when you can make them a little healthy too. This recipe gives you that extra crunch you need to keep your afternoon going, while also keeping all of your fall vibes in full gear. Now enough chit chat, let’s get to the recipe!


  • 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup crispy rice cereal
  • 1/3 cup flax seed
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, cereal, flax seed, chia seeds, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  2. Add the almond butter, pumpkin, honey and vanilla, then fold in the chocolate chips. Just like with my Protein Ball recipe, feel free to get your hands a little dirty to help mix the ingredients better, or just use a firm spatula.
  3. Roll into small balls about the size of 2 tablespoons, and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. They should stay fresh for about a week!

About Alyssa Janis

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
