When is pumpkin season?  Does it really have to end?  Pumpkin is very low in fat (as in almost none), high in fiber and loaded with vitamin A and potassium.  So when I looked in my pantry and saw one lonely can of pumpkin that didn’t get used a pie a few months ago, I decided to make a healthy and delicious snack.  If you know me, I am a snacker.  I love my smoothies at breakfast, and most of the time I don’t forget about lunch, but mid-morning and mid-afternoon I find myself hungry.  My goal is grab for something healthy, of course, but reality is that I just grab for whatever is easiest for me.

And these No Bake Pumpkin Protein Bites are an easy to make, filling snack!  In fact, they are also good with my morning coffee ๐Ÿ˜‰
