Balls are great! They are quick, easy, most are freezable and they are the perfect size for kids lunch boxes. Here are five great healthy ball recipes for kids…well for big people too, but as they are not full of sugar they are great for kids 🙂
Banana Oat Balls
These do sound a bit odd at first but trust me these are amazing!! You can leave out the choc chips or replace them with sultanas or anything else you like. They are also yum with about 2Tbs of cocoa added to the mix. This is a Thermomix recipe but they can easily be made in any food processor.
My girls love these!
