Hello & Happy Monday!

 

 

 

 

In all honesty, I’m late for the train when it comes to making energy balls lol. I had heard of them since the inception of Pinterest. (that and salads in a jar) and was excited about the whole concept, but the fact that I had seen them everywhere led me to believe that…

 

 

They are just TOO EASY, where is the fun in that..?!

 

 

What I’ve come to find is that some of the best recipes are truly the easiest. What I love most is that you can use the foundation of this recipe to create whatever kind of ball you like. (hello diversity)

My objective when it comes to producing any recipe is to increase its nutritional value in every way shape and form wherever I can.. When you’re working recipes such as these where you can camouflage anything and everything.. let’s just say, I get excited!

 


 

 

 

You can pack energy balls full of nutrient dense ingredients and the end result is still perfection

 

 

If you’re looking for nutrient dense snack that’s not packaged and processed with tons of added sugars

 

 

You need to get on the energy ball train!!
