Not only are these balls naturally sweet from the Raw Nut Butter and Maple Syrup, they are extremely filling - just what you need to replace the goodness to an eager and hungry body. Fantastic as an in-between snack or even a pre gym protein boost, these little balls are very versatile and easy to make.

These are a solid snack companion for before or after a workout. They contain lots of protein from the Nut Butters and Rice Protein Powder which translates to loads of energy and recovery sustenance for your muscles. These balls also have lots of minerals which are exactly what your body needs when it has been pushed to its limit. A lot of minerals leave the body when we do heavy exercise and so we need to refuel on magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, iron and healthy fatty acids for replensh our energy levels. Along with Cacao and its multitude of phytochemical components and minerals this recipe is exactly what you need to accomplish this.
