These energy balls are the easiest, healthiest and most popular snack I’ve created yet!
Only 4 ingredients, ready in minutes, and low in sugar (only 1/2 tsp of raw honey in each ball).
I was so thrilled to have them featured on Shape.com in an article on healthier sugar substitutes my dietitian colleague Toby Amidor put together.
Some sweet facts about honey:
- Honey is rich in calories from natural sugar, with 1 teaspoon providing 22 calories. This is more than white sugar, which has 16 calories in a teaspoon. But… Honey has a sweeter taste, so people tend to use less of it.
- Honey is a better choice than white sugar because it doesn’t raise blood sugar levels as high. Honey also contains antioxidants and plant nutrients that have been shown to prevent tumour growth in animal studies.
So here they are, your new favourite snack, packed with fibre, protein and healthy fats. They’re gluten free if you use gluten free oats.
They’re super addictive, so make extras if you plan to share!
