Need a boost of energy before all the Halloween festivities coming up? Pumpkin Energy Balls will do the trick! One of the easiest snacks I've made and people rave over them. Kids do too! They're the perfect dessert to take to any holiday parties this season.
Besides giving you energy, they're loaded with nutritional benefits (like all my recipes). Pumpkin Puree has been shown to reduce inflammation, which can lead to many chronic health conditions, including cancer and heart disease, as well as Type 2 diabetes and arthritis.
