Pumpkin Banana Maple French
Toast Protein Bites! 🍌🍁🎃🍞
I saw someone post a couple weeks ago in their Instagram stories about the blueberry scone version of The Ambrosia Collective protein powder. I ended up ordering the banana maple French toast flavor using their discount code and will share it if I can figure out who it was!! For the life of me, I can’t remember who it was🤦🏻♀️ If I can remember or they respond to my call out on IG, I’ll update this post and give you the details. With the code, you order though the site and not Amazon and I think it was 15% off.
Anyhow, my forgetfulness aside, this recipe is so delicious and so simple! Outside of having to grind the oats into a flour, the rest is just mixing everything together in a bowl, letting it chill in the fridge for a couple of hours, then rolling the dough into balls. You can either store them in the fridge or the freezer. You could also mold them into bars instead of bites and adjust macros accordingly.

Pumpkin Banana Maple French Toast Protein Bites
- 1.5 cups (180g) canned pumpkin
- 120g banana maple french toast protein powder (can sub with vanilla or cinnamon if you have it. The flavor will of course just be pumpkin, but still good; I recommend vegan/vegetarian for this recipe; see note below* and photo below for the one I used)
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup (40g) oats, ground into a flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Let batter chill in the refrigerator for a couple hours. Roll into balls and store in the fridge or freezer.
I like re-using the containers we get Chinese takeout in to freeze since they are single layer and won’t stick as much to one another. You can get similar ones like this online too.
Makes 20 bites, each about 19g, macros as follows:
The protein that I used was 30 g per scoop for a total of 120 g.
*Note: If you try it using a different type of protein powder like whey, you may have to dial back significantly on the amount of pumpkin that you use. Plant-based proteins absorbs liquid and hold its form while whey proteins will stay runny. You could also add a binder like coconut flour or nut butter if you use whey.
