I’ve been slacking on my Vegan MOFO duties. My apologies. Sometimes life gets in the way of my blog 😉
To make up for it, I’m sharing a delicious and nutritious treat – Pumpkin Pie Omega Blast Balls!
I tried these out on my coworkers, and they received rave reviews. Well, except for the name. I personally like the “omega blast balls” moniker, but my omni friends are a little put off by it. I tried calling them pumpkin fudge balls, but again, that was a no go. Apparently, most people don’t like to eat food with the word “ball” in the title. Ha ha ha! Luckily, I didn’t just get criticism, I also got a few suggested, and one of them is a winner – pumpkin truffles. But, I feel like I should roll the Pumpkin Truffles in cinnamon sugar. Which kind of defeats the healthiness. A little. So I think I’m going to go with the omega blast ball extension when I share with you guys, and the truffles tag when I share with the rest of the world – cinnamon sugar included.
1/2 c oat flour
1/2 c flax meal (I use golden flax)
1/2 c rolled oats
1 TBSP chia seeds
1/2 c pumpkin puree
2 TBSP maple syrup
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Add all ingredients. Mix to combine. Roll into balls. Store in refrigerator.
I get 10-12 medium-sized balls from this amount of mix.
You may want to add additional sweetener. I think stevia would work well with the maple syrup. I also got a couple of suggestions to add more spice. You can decide 😉
