The best Baobab energy balls

The best Baobab energy balls

 

We all need that little pick up sometimes and these Baobab energy balls are perfect for giving you a little energy boost! I have recently fallen in love with the new super fruit named Baobab. I’ve written an article about all the amazing benefits Baobab offers (click here to read it) and you’ll be surprised with the fact that we should actually be adding this to our daily diet! These energy balls have Baobab powder in them and they are full of iron and vitamin C that gives you that little boost you need!

I love making these energy balls as they are quick and easy to make and they are perfect for a healthy snack or as a pre workout! I always keep them in my fridge and as I make quite a big batch every time I can enjoy them at any time of the day and even on the go. Especially on stressful and busy days these are perfect to give you that little extra boost you need! Plus, they are super yum!

I always use my favourite Baobab powder from Adunawhich isn’t only the best quality, it’s also an amazing company that supports local African farmers who produce Baobab products.
