What ingredients are in pumpkin energy balls?
Pumpkin energy balls use ingredients you probably already have on hand. To make pumpkin spice energy balls, you’ll need:
- Rolled Oats (use gluten-free if necessary)
- Peanut Butter
- White Chocolate Chips (or milk chocolate)
- Pumpkin Puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- Pumpkin Spice (or a combination of seasonings listed in the recipe)
- Ground Flaxseed (optional)
Make these energy balls in a large mixing bowl. However, you could blend these together in the food processor if you prefer a smoother texture.

Pumpkin Spice Energy Balls Recipe
Pumpkin Spice Energy Balls are super simple to make. All you need is large mixing bowl and spatula.
Firstly, just add all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spatula to combine. (Alternatively, if you are looking for a smoother energy ball, you can process all of the ingredient and then just fold in the white chocolate.)
Then, using a cookie scoop or spoon, measure out 24 balls and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
If your hands get sticky when rolling, just run under cold water or spray with some cooking spray.
How to store energy balls
You can store energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Also, if you’re taking them for lunch or snack, no need to worry about keeping them refrigerated.
You could freeze energy balls in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two months. Then, just take them out when you’re ready to snack.
