Also, healthier snacking treat. Great for breakfast, brunch or an afternoon snack. Of course, so yummy too!

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.

Also 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. So easy to make too.
