Energy balls!

Energy balls!


It’s 3pm and the packet of biscuits in the office is giving you the eye. It’s been a long day, you’ve worked hard, but dinner is still a far off dream on the horizon.  You start to convince yourself that you deserve a biscuit. ‘I’ve been at work all day, I had a healthy breakfast and lunch and went for a run this morning’.

This is what the biscuits want you to think. But don’t let those crumby little biscuits ruin your healthy day.

‘But it’s only one biscuit, surely that can’t do any harm?’ Stop lying to yourself. Nobody in the history of this earth has ever just had one biscuit. One leads to two, two leads to half a packet and half a packet leads to you crying on the floor curled up in a ball of shame. 

So instead satisfy your stomach with these energy balls. These snacks are a fantastic combination of protein, carbs and healthy fats. What’s more they don’t require cooking. That’s right, no baking required and so the only excuse for eating those biscuits is laziness. Also, don’t tell me you don’t like the taste because there are a plethora of different flavours to choose from.

Before we explore said flavours allow me provide the method for making these delicious snacks. Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix together with your hands, shape into balls then refrigerate for 30 minutes. Simple.
