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
