Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites + A Sweepstakes

posted by on 10/26/2015 | 11,710 comments (leave one of your own)

My son is a busy little guy who plays sports, and he recently discovered that wearing activewear is simply the best. Or as he puts it: he likes wearing his “sports clothes”. I try to get him to wear clothes that aren’t for sports a few times a week, but the minute he gets home from school, he immediately changes into his basketball shorts. I get it, as I’m typing this I’m wearing yoga pants and a tank top and I haven’t done yoga in four days.

JCPenney asked us if we would like to shop for some activewear for Troy and he was all in because he is all about hoodies that aren’t shirts with buttons and warm-up pants that aren’t jeans. I was all in because I love JCPenney, they seriously have the best deals.


JCPenney has a fantastic selection of Nike in store and online: shorts, tees, fleece, pants, hoodies, socks, and shoes.

These warm-up pants he selected are lined with fleece on the inside and will be so perfect when it snows for the next seven months and we have to move the basketball playing indoors.


The hoodie is also a good choice for winter, it is Therma-FIT fabric (microfiber fleece fabric that keeps you insulated).


And because he knows that the perfect sports ensemble isn’t complete without socks and shoes, he chose a cool three pack of performance crew socks and a pair of high tops. He told me that “High tops make you jump higher, it’s science”.


Also science: Active children that burn energy equal hungry children. My kids eat like it is their j-o-b. They love to snack on these Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites that I make and keep in the freezer.


Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites


1 cup old fashioned rolled oats-uncooked (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats)

1/3 cup pure pumpkin puree

1/4 cup ground flaxseed

Couple of tablespoons of chia seeds (I threw them in because I had them in the pantry)

1/3 cup honey (or more if you like sweet)

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until completely mixed. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Scoop and roll into one inch balls. Store in refrigerator or freezer in an airtight container. Makes 12+ depending on size of your scoop.

What’s your favorite healthy snack to eat? Tell me in the comments for a chance to win a $100 JCPenney gift card.

    Another thing I have really noticed is the fact for many people, bad credit is the reaction to circumstances past their control. For instance they may have already been saddled by having an illness so they have substantial bills going to collections. It may be due to a work loss or inability to work. Sometimes divorce proceedings can send the financial situation in the wrong direction. Many thanks for sharing your notions on this website.
