Energy Boosting Fat Balls

Energy Boosting Fat Balls are a perfect snack to wake you up halfway through the day. You can make a huge batch and store them in the freezer for easy access when hunger strikes. These are one of my favourite snacks because they don’t make any noise so I can quietly munch away while baby naps.

They also travel well. I’ll pop a couple in my bag on busy days when I know I may not get a chance to sit and eat. I’m always grateful for the delicious energy boost.

Why I love fat

Fat has gotten a bad reputation over the past few years. The “low-fat” fad diets were all the rage for years but they are starting to fizzle as more researching is showing that they simply don’t work. As a society, we are slowly getting over our fat-phobia. We are learning about the amazing health benefits fats have to offer, such as:

  • As an energy-storage substance, fat is important for maintaining high energy levels
  • Fat facilitates the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K)
  • It is an essential component of cell membranes
  • Nerves and vital organs are surrounded and protected by fat
  • Fat helps regulate body temperature
  • It is essential for blood clotting

    Do you have a nut free equivalent recipe?
    Thanks Kris

      Hi Kris, the recipe is really forgiving so you can substitute the nuts for your favourite seed and use sunflower seed or pumpkin seed butter.
