Vegan Pumpkin Protein Balls (No Bake, Paleo)

  • Yield: 12 protein balls 1x


These vegan pumpkin protein balls are made with pumpkin puree, protein powder, coconut and pecans.  They're paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and no bake - perfect for a healthy snack.




  1. Combine the dates, pecans and coconut in your food processor. Blend to a coarse mixture.
  2. Add in the remaining protein ball ingredients and blend until the mixture is thick, with a consistent texture.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the mixture and roll it into balls. Each protein ball is about one tablespoon in size, making 12 protein balls.
  4. After rolling, enjoy immediately.
  5. Store in an air-tight container or baggie in the fridge, up to one week or in the freezer up to one month.


*I used a pumpkin seed protein powder for this recipe but have also tested these protein balls with pea protein.  Both work great.  Although I can't test every protein powder, most plant-based protein powders should work.
