I was so glad to find this easy recipe for a transportable snack that I can make in large quantities. And like all my favorite recipes, they are fully customizable! You might substitute other nuts/seeds into this recipe or add something completely different like unsweetened cocoa powder, shredded coconut, cayenne powder (just a pinch), cinnamon, or even protein powder! You could even roll the balls in some of the powdered ingredients for a flavorful coating.
They are so easy to take to work or in the car and great for school lunches. I know that I would have loved these as a kid! And the slight sweetness helps soothe a craving for sweets WITHOUT spiking blood sugar!
Try freezing them and adding them into smoothies for a convenient dose of healthy fat and protein.
