California Walnut Power Balls: Healthier Treats

California Walnut Power Balls: Healthier Treats.

Hello friends. Fancy making some of these California Walnut Power Balls?

A healthier snacking treat. Great for breakfast, brunch or an afternoon snack.

Walnuts are the only nut to contain significant amounts of the plant-based essential omega-3 ALA (2.5g/30g). A handful of walnuts (30g) offers 2.5g of plant-based essential omega-3 ALA, 2g of fibre, 4.6g of protein and ‘good’ polyunsaturated fats.

A great way to add more protein to your diet and perfect after a gym workout.

These power balls have just 4 healthy ingredients and only take about 10 minutes to make.

What’s not to love?

They also keep for about 4-5 days so great to make a batch or two up for the next few days.

You can also mix the ingredients up a little to suit your mood.
