Banana Energy Balls

These banana bliss balls make for a naturally sweet and healthy snack. All you need to do is toss everything into a food processor, roll it into balls, and pop in the fridge!

Healthy fats, fibre and protein are all packed into these bite-sized treats which need no baking and take only 10 minutes to make!

These are perfect to give to your kids when they need a quick energy-boost or for when you might be feeling that mid-afternoon slump.

It’s no secret, I’m a fan of the energy ball, you might already have a favourite recipe from my blog like Cookie Dough Energy Balls, Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss Balls, No Bake Peanut Butter Balls, or perhaps my Raw Cacao Balls?
