Hey Y’all! I teamed up with Kassia from @infusedholistickitchen to create the perfect snack. An energy ball with a healthy balance of good fat, protein, and low sugar. For the adults, we focused on creating a paleo friendly ball full of antioxidants, protein, superfoods, and healthy fats for sustained energy throughout the day. For the kids, we wanted to provide a snack that was allergy-free and low in sugar but still tasted yummy. I hope you enjoy!
