Fall is here, time to pumpkin spice up your life!!  Here is a recipe that you can feel good about snacking on! What’s not to love about it? You have pure pumpkin (full of vitamin A,C, and a great source of potassium), oats (high fiber, magnesium and protein) nuts and nut butter ( healthy fat, protein, potassium, magnesium) and dark chocolate (phytochemicals which fight free radicals).

Plus, they are super simple.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl, roll into balls and freeze! I grab two as a quick snack mid morning or afternoon with tea.
