    • Thank you Emma,

      So glad you liked them 🙂 Well if you liked the Coconut and Lemon Balls try my recipe for Protein Balls. All you need are;

      1 cup of dates.
      100g of mixed nuts (you can use any variety of nuts).
      50g of a mixture of pumpkin, sunflower and linseeds (you can add anything you like i.e. chia seeds, goji berries etc).
      Blend them up in a blender.
      Roll the mixture into walnut size balls.
      Roll them in desiccated coconut or cocoa or even a bit of both. Enjoy!
