This recipe was created as a spin off from the Strawberry Energy Balls that were created over 2 years ago. They were a huge crowd pleaser and perfect for a fresh summer snack. The other day I had lots of fresh blueberries and decided to swap strawberries for blueberries and it totally worked out. Enjoy!
This recipe works because it’s contains oats for healthy carbs, they eventually break down into glucose which is the bodies primary fuel source. Oats are also a really great source of heart-healthy soluble fibre. Protein powder helps to keep you fuller longer, if you are not a fan of protein powder you can sub for shelled hemp seeds. Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants, they are low in calories and high in nutrients. They also contain fibre, vitamin K, C and potassium.
These fresh balls are the perfect summer snack or fun dessert.
Summer is an amazing time to clean up the way you eat and add in more physical activity with the longer days and abundance of yummy fresh foods. I wanted to share more than this one healthy snack recipe click below to grab 21 Fresh Summer Snack Ideas:
