Lemon Protein Balls

View recipe

This past week I was at an event called Flavours located in the Muskoka area, I made and brought over 250 lemon balls and they got snatched up so quickly. I even had people stopping by staying that someone told them that they needed to stop by my table to try the delicious healthy balls. This made my heart so happy!

This recipe is in the cookbook so I never thought to put it on the blog but realized that anytime I have an event these are my go to because they are a hit with kids as well as adults. I did bring these to a school event and kids were asking for seconds, so it is kid approved. This is a great recipe that you can whip up with your kids during the summer break so you have healthy snacks to keep up with the busy days. With only has 5 ingredients there is no excuse why you can’t make this yummy snack this week.

  • gluten-free

  • plant-based
  • nut-free (use oat flour instead of almond flour)
