I started eating these energy balls when I was nursing my first baby … and I haven’t stopped since! They are not only awesome as milk producers for lactating mamas, but they are delicious, and a healthy family friendly snack! I introduced them to my toddler when I had her baby sister and I was nervous she wouldn’t like them because they had flax seeds… but to my surprise she loved them!!!! I think anything that has chocolate chips can be yummy… and my three year old agrees! 👍🏻 I love that we can make them together and it’s even better they are a healthy “treat” that makes a great afternoon snack. I throw a batch together and leave them in the fridge. They have even become popular with my hubby… and that honestly was a shocker to me! He isn’t a huge health kick fan… but he loves these little energy balls. The biggest test was when I had family visiting to see my baby when she was born. These energy balls were in my fridge and my teenage nephews went crazy over them… so much so my sister went home and made them! 🙌🏼 Huge win for this “Organic Auntie” (as they all call me)…over here!!! After being sick and weak I decided I needed to have a boost of energy so Sophia and I whipped up a batch this morning! I hope you get to try these out in your kitchen … trust me your kids will love them too! 😉
