After sharing why we travel with a high speed blender, I had huge requests for the protein nut balls that are a raving family favourite snack.

It’s the stuff that causes arguments.

I have to carefully divide them up and put the girls on two ball rations in their lunch boxes. Otherwise they’d eat 24 of them in a row. (so would I)

They are super delicious, so simple to make, and super healthy. They’ll also give you lots of natural energy and fill you up.

Don’t forget to pin and share the recipe with anyone who’d love some yum in their tum!
