No Bake Protein Pumpkin Apple Pie Bites

 

I’m beyond excited that Fall is finally here. Absolutely love decorating our home during this season but most of all eating and drinking pumpkin spice everything for the next couple months. Who’s with me on this? Although, apparently southern California missed the memo that it’s no longer summer. Folks, we’re still in the 90s over here. And since all things pumpkin are already sitting in our neighborhood store shelves, I can’t help but want to eat them all and pretend like it’s big chunky sweater season over here already.

In the meantime though, you can find me making these healthier No Bake Protein Pumpkin Apple Pie Bites because the thought of turning on the oven right now is making me dread the whole baking thing. And since you all know I’m all about making recipes with a healthier twists, I wanted to let you in on a couple ingredients I’m currently obsessing over. Coconut flour and almond flour to be exact.

Both flours are healthier options when baking or in this case no baking-baking (ha!). But all things considered, “neither of these flours are “better” than the other. Coconut flour is high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats and is free from wheat and other grains. It is also low in sugar, digestible carbohydrates and calories, and has a low score on the glycemic index. Almond flour is extremely healthy, but has a bit more calories and fat, while having fewer carbs and grams of fiber. The higher calorie and fat content isn’t a bad thing, and this makes it a great choice for those on a low-carb, ketogenic, or higher fat diet. So you can see, it really comes down to your specific needs and preferences.” — Dr. Axe
