Pumpkin Protein Balls

Quick and simple recipe! Great for a pre-workout snack. :-)

1/4 cup pure pumpkin
1 scoop vanilla or cinnamon protein powder
2 tablespoons oat flour
1-2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1/2 tsp cinnamon, and extra cinnamon for coating
1/2 tsp truvia
1/4 cup crushed walnuts

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Add a 1-2 tablespoons water (SLOWLY!) until the mix becomes pasty enough to roll into ball. Roll mixture into balls (size is your choice). Then, roll the balls in the crushed walnuts AND/OR cinnamon!I put mine in the freezer for about 1-2 hours. You can also keep in the fridge overnight.
