Fiber rich protein balls

One of my favorite lockdown treats. A healthy treat made with healthy fats and lots of fiber.

The dates adds a hint of sweetness without overpowering the flavour. The extra fiber will help you feel fuller, so less sugar cravings and better food choices, however there are endless reasons why we should all eat a bit more fiber rich foods.

This recipe couldn’t be more simpler and affordable too. I love to make these on the weekend as a extra little snack around the house and they work wonders in packed lunch boxes too.
