benefits of energy balls

Energy balls are my favourite go-to snack and perfect for meal prep as a large number can be made in just 5 minutes with minimal effort – simply blend the ingredients in a food processor, roll the mixture into balls and place in the fridge, where they can be stored for up to a week.

These energy balls are also made from healthy nutritious ingredients that are free from inflammatory refined sugar, preservatives and artificial flavours that store bought snacks often contain:-

  • Green banana flour (UK Link/US Link). This is a great source of resistant starch, which feeds the good bacteria in the gut, improving digestion and supporting our immune system. It’s also high in essential vitamins and minerals like potassium, magnesium and zinc.
  • Lemons are a good source of vitamin C, which supports the immune system.
  • Wild blueberry powder (UK Link/US Link). Wild blueberries contain double the amount of antioxidants and have a stronger flavour than regular blueberries, as well as being a concentrated source of various vitamins and minerals.
  • Medjool dates (UK Link/US Link). These provide natural sweetness making this recipe refined sugar free.
