What some of you may not know is that classic energy balls can be full of excess fat and sugar. To make the best ones for your health and digestion, you must chose real, natural ingredients.
If you don't know what energy balls are, they are a mixture of nut butter, honey, oats, nuts and seeds that are rolled up into a ball and chilled. THEY ARE DELICIOUS. & healthy.

A great idea for buying your ingredients is brining your empty containers to Bulk Barn and loading up on nuts, seeds, chocolate, oats etc. Then you don't have to buy or use plastic.
