VEGAN PUMPKIN SPICE NO BAKE PROTEIN BITES.

I saw an entire section in trader joe's dedicated to pumpkin flavored treats and I knew i had my next snack idea.

I am the queen of being hangry when I don't have at least of five meals throughout the day. For me that means 2-3 snacks which typically keeps me sane and since switching to a plant based diet, I've tried to incorporate protein packed snacks whenever possible. So this week I couldn't think of a better way to incorporate my love of all things fall flavored and protein packed snacking than to tackle a new recipe! I present to you my vegan no bake bites that are filled with tons of flavor and easy to whip together.
