20 Easy, Nutritious, Kid-Friendly Energy Ball Recipes

Being a mom of three young kids, I’m always on the look-out for new, easy and nutritious homemade snacks that my kids love. We often turn to energy or protein ball recipes, because they’re so easy to make and you can pack them full of nutrition. I love finding interesting flavour combinations for energy balls (my favourites always contain chocolate), and unique uses for nutritious ingredients that I already have in my fridge and pantry (like quinoa and coconut). To inspire you, I’ve shared 20 of my favourite energy/protein ball recipes below!
