Protein Balls

Regular snacking helps to regulate blood sugar, keep energy levels high and maintain a healthy metabolism. Snacking on whole foods like seeds, nuts, fruits and low-fat dairy is a good way to ensure you stay healthy!

These easy-to-make, nutritious protein balls are good to have on hand. They are filling and contains little to no preservatives and artificial ingredients, that many highly-processed store-bought snacks have in them.

Simply mix four different coatings to create different flavours and textures!
