Lemon Protein Balls
This past week I was at an event called Flavours located in the Muskoka area, I made and brought over 250 lemon balls and they got snatched up so quickly. I even had people stopping by staying that someone told them that they needed to stop by my table to try the delicious healthy balls. This made my heart so happy!
Because this recipe is in the cookbook I never thought to put it on the blog but realized that anytime I have an event these are my go to because they are a hit with kids as well as adults. I did bring these to a school event and kids were asking for seconds, parents with kids at home this summer this is a great recipe for you to whip up together so you have healthy snacks to keep up with the busy summer days.
