Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites

It’s officially that time of year… when every food blogger on the internet busts out all the pumpkin, cranberry, apple, (insert fall food of your choice) recipe they has been hiding from you all year long. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that I decided to give my Pumpkin Pie Protein Bites a little makeover this week. I’ll be making these on repeat for the next few months and I know once you make them yourself, you’ll want to do the same.
