Cinnamon Power Balls
The beautiful thing about these energy balls is that they are adult-friendly and kid-approved! That’s how you know that they are good. Kids require high quality fuel and there is no better way to provide that than these Cinnamon Power Balls! Instead of using added sugar as a sweetener, the recipe calls for three medjool dates, which are a dried fruit that does not contain added sugar. The other benefit is that the recipe is high in protein, fats and fiber to help balance blood sugar levels. Don’t wait until taste testing to get your kids involved! Engage them in the prep by letting them measure the ingredients, pour into the food processor and roll into balls!
