Kids Pumpkin Power Balls (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

Just in time for fall, I’m bringing you this new recipe for Pumpkin Power Balls, perfect for the kids (big and small) in your home. These nutritious and delicious power balls include an entire pouch of Sprout Organic Pumpkin Apple Red Lentil with Cinnamon in the recipe, bringing you a great source of organic, healthy, whole plant foods in every bite. Just whizz the ingredients together in a food processor, roll them in pumpkin seeds, and enjoy! No baking required. These power balls—filled with healthy carbs, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants—are perfect for healthy snack time, lunchboxes, and fitness breaks.

I’m a big fan of Sprout Organic Foods for children, because the product line is filled with organic fruits, vegetables, grains, and pulses, made from scratch using real, whole plants.

This recipe uses a whole pouch of Sprout Organic Pumpkin Apple Red Lentil with Cinnamon.
Here are the ingredients you need to make these nutritious Pumpkin Power Balls.
Just place the dry ingredients in the container of your food processor and pulse; then add the remaining ingredients to make a smooth texture.
Toll the mixture into balls, then pumpkin seeds.

  1. Place oats, chia, flax, pumpkin pie spice, and ½ cup pumpkin seeds in the container of a food processor. Process for a few minutes, until ingredients are finely ground.
  2. Add pouch of Sprout Organic Pumpkin Apple Red Lentil with Cinnamon, dates, sunflower seed butter, and vanilla and process until smooth. May need to stop and scrape down sides while processing (makes a thick batter).
  3. Form mixture into balls, by rolling them with your hands. Place 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds on a dish and roll each ball into the seeds. Refrigerate until serving time.
