Energy balls - lunchbox snacksThe recipe for these “Energy balls” was shared with me by a fellow school mum shortly after my eldest son started school.

Her view was that snack and lunch times are over quite quickly at school, so she wanted her daughter to have something quick to eat that was packed with energy. These energy balls, which are very simple to make fit the bill.

These energy balls are packed with great nutritious protein rich ingredients like oats, chia seeds and tahini.

Energy balls aka “truffles”

My son has no idea that these are full of goodness. He thinks they are “chocolate truffles” and gobbles them down. Who am I to set him straight?
