Need a healthy treat that will give your immune system a boost & won’t ruin your appetite? Give these ginger apricot protein balls a try.
I often have a jar of these in the cupboard. The ginger adds a mildly sweet, spicy bite of freshness, which leaves me feeling both satisfied & energised… 💪😁
They don’t require any baking, using fresh ingredients they’re super easy to make & may just save you a penny or 2, when compared to those expensive pre packaged brands… 💰 Simply blitz, mix & shape them into a ball for a quick, delicious healthy treat!
Ginger & cinnamon act as a natural anti inflammatory, they help with digestive problems & can assist in boosting your immune system. I have been known to sneak them into my families diet wherever possible. 😂 Dates and apricot add a rich, natural sweetness, so no processed sugar required & they’re both high in fibre.
Full of chia, flax, pumpkin & sesame seeds, you’ve got all the natural protein needed from this simple, healthy snack!
