Pumpkin Chip Date Balls

Welcome to The Oregano Thymes!

My name is Ashley and I am super happy and a little nervous to share my life and recipes with the world. I have thought and prayed about this for months and I finally decided to take the plunge.

Join me on this ride as I share my life of gardening, paleo-ish recipes, and my life as a mom. Writing and cooking is something that I really enjoy and as I marry the two here on this space I hope you find new recipes to add to your kitchen arsenal.

So with saying that I am excited to share these Pumpkin Chip Date Balls with you! They are super quick, tasty, and you will have little (and big) hands reaching into the pan for more.

They are that good.

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup real creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 Tablespoons hemp protein powder
2 Tablespoons ground chia seed
2 Tablespoons flax seed meal
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup enjoy life mega chunks


Put all ingredients except chocolate chunks into a food processor. Pulse until smooth and creamy. Add chocolate chunks. Pulse until broken up amongst ball batter.

Roll batter into 1″ balls. Makes around 20.

Make these on Sunday night and enjoy these throughout the week! Replace your “treats” with this healthy snack.
