POWER BALLS

Updated: Dec 3, 2020




These tasty energy power balls are a great snack and pick me up.

Full of energy, only eat 2-3 of these as a quick snack during the day.

Eating too many healthy treats can also put you in a calorie surplus which will stop you burning fat so enjoy these sparingly.
