Pumpkin Protein Bites - The Foodie Affair

This snack will be your “go-to” fall healthy treat! 

I based this recipe from my protein bites, gluten-free snack recipe, and gave them to my running buddies for a Halloween treat!

Giving food to friends is one of my favorite ways to show my love and appreciation.  It’s always fun to see how excited they get, especially when it’s not expected!

Pumpkin Protein Bites - The Foodie Affair

Munch on one or two of these no-bake pumpkin protein bites between meals, before or after a workout.

You can even eat these bites as an appetizer before ordering sushi like my friends did when we got together for dinner!

This month I have two half marathons on my calendar! On November 17th, the Big Sur Half Marathon, which is an event that’s held in my neighborhood, but before then, three of my sole sisters and I will be strutting 13.1 miles in our running shoes at Disney’s Wine & Dine in Florida.

I’m prepared to tackle the miles, but like all the bazillion other races I’ve participated in, I won’t be bringing home the money race purse, assuming there is one.

Maybe the first place winner gets a bottle of wine and a tour of Cinderella’s castle? I don’t know.

I do know that some of these little morsels with will be traveling with me so I don’t have to buy an overpriced snack at the airport! I also know that I’ll be sharing a glass of wine or two with my gals, and bringing home a blingy medal (a reward for participating 😉 )!

Actually, I’ll be coming back with two medals because we also ran Tinker Bell’s Half Marathon in Anaheim, CA, so we qualify for a Coast to Coast medal! How cool is that 🙂

  1. Do these have to be stored in the fridge? I was thinking about making these for my husband who is deployed to Afghanistan.

    1. He Stephanie, Since these are made with real pumpkin puree it does need to be refrigerated. You can try leaving it out and increasing the pumpkin spice and that would be ok to ship, but I would give it a taste test first. Care packages are the best! I hope this works out.

  2. Yum! I made these today with apple almond butter as the nut butter — it added another tasty layer of fall treats to the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
