We all know the struggle. You’re cruising through your day, feeling good, on top of things. Then that familiar rumble hits your stomach – snack time! But what to choose? Reach for a sugary treat that’ll leave you crashing later? Absolutely not! Try these delicious little bites that will crush your cravings and keep you energised: Date and Oat Bliss Balls!

Often referred to as nature’s candy, dates will give you a long-lasting energy boost without the crash of refined sugar and are a fantastic source of fibre, which can help you feel fuller for longer. Oats are another superstar ingredient, considered a champion of whole grains, and they too will provide sustained energy, keep you feeling fuller for longer and are a good source of essential vitamins and minerals. Add in a touch of peanut butter as a great source of protein and healthy fats, cacao powder boasting powerful antioxidants and mood-boosting properties and desiccated coconut which boosts the healthy fat and fibre content and you’ve got a pretty power packed snack.

These Date and Oat Bliss Balls were shared by one of our incredible community members and were too good not to share! They come together in just minutes and are packed with ingredients that will satisfy your taste buds and nourish your body, so it’s time to ditch the junk food aisle and level up your snacking.

BONUS: Make them in bulk and freeze them so you have a stack of wholesome treats throughout the week.
