We love these energy balls. Or ‘dung balls’ as they’re called in our family. (OK, OK “poo balls” I was trying to be polite but you know what kids are like.)
These little beauties are all over the internet and I expect they’re all great. But ours are awesome!
They are quick, easy, healthy and yummy. They are full of fibre and not high in sugar. Nuts and seeds are high in protein and other great nutrients (sunflower seeds are high in vitamin E). Best yet, the kids have great fun making them (and there’s not even much mess!) One of those things you can just ‘rustle up’.

So here goes.
1. Take ingredients.
2. Mix in large bowl.
3. Shape into bite size pieces.
4. Arrange nicely on plate so that you can take a photo (optional, you could just scoff them!)
