A creamy low-sugar snack loaded with healthy fats, fiber, and protein to keep you full longer.
First, there was Coconut Cashew Energy Balls, then there was the Ultimate Energy Seed Truffles in the #NScookbook, and now I bring you Coconut Energy Balls 2.0! Low sugar bites full of healthy fats, fiber, and protein that’ll keep your blood sugars happy (i.e. stable).
So many clients come to me with intense sugar cravings and after assessing their diet, it’s not surprising to see sugar-heavy snacks and meals! Added sugar is in almost every packaged item we pick up and it’s even easy to load up on the “good stuff”, i.e. sugar from fruit. Today, I want to share with you a literally no added sugar snack you can keep on hand whenever hunger strikes and to stop your sugar cravings in their track.
These are different from other energy balls I’ve shared on the NS Blog because I don’t use a touch of maple syrup nor dates. These are mostly made of nuts, seeds, coconut oil, nut butter, and a couple NS Optimizer Options! I wanted to give you an option (highly requested) that’s no sugar added and full of healthy fats, protein, fiber.
I love making these on the weekend to have a healthy snack on the go for the week ahead. I’ll keep some in the fridge at work, some at home, and enjoy them for a quick treat. Luna tries to get em’, but they’re for humans haha!
If you try this recipe, I wanna hear about it, so let’s chat! Leave a comment it, rate it (this helps me improve future recipes), and don’t forget to tag a picture #nutritionstripped to show how you live and try these recipes on Instagram! I’d love to see what you come up with. Now off to make a batch of these to bring to the office next week!
