Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

We are to the point where many of my favorite fruits like berries and grapes are at the end of their season. While my favorite Honeycrisp apples are now in peak season – it can be a struggle to find fruit to eat and fill my Purple containers in my meal plan. Enter Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites. 🙌🏼I mean who doesn’t LOVE pumpkin Pie – these bites are sure to not disappoint if you’re a fan. I make a couple bathes and store them in the fridge to last through the week. Enjoy!
