It is officially September and you know what that means…..Pumpkin Spice everything!!!!  And to kick it off, I am sharing a super easy recipe for pumpkin spice energy bites.  These babies are such a great snack at any time, but I love to grab them for a quick breakfast on my way out the door or as a pre-workout nosh.

You can pick pumpkin spice up at the grocery store or you can make your own in just a minute with spices you probably already have on hand.  I’ve shared my recipe for it here.

As with any energy bites, you can customize them to your liking.  Basically, you can generally substitute a “wet” ingredient for another wet (i.e.: honey for syrup) and a “dry” ingredient for another dry (i.e.: flax seed for chia seed, chocolate chips for raisins).  Got a picky eater on your hands? No prob, just add their faves and you’ll be good to go!

In keeping with the fall feeling of these energy bites I chose to mix pumpkin spice with cinnamon chips.  Yum!

These energy bites should last up to a week in your fridge, but they are always gone way before that in my house!  Little hands tend to love these and I feel pretty good about them as a filling snack, so it’s a win-win.
