Blueberry Muffin Energy Balls
I might have to make it a weekly thing with these energy balls. They get me thinking about creative ways to make nuts and seeds taste even better. They’re also probably the easiest thing I make during my meal prep days! I made carrot cake energy balls and the blueberry muffin energy balls a couple weeks ago and took a poll to see which people gravitated toward the most. It was pretty evenly split. If I had to pick between the two, I’d go with the carrot cake but the decision was tough. I guess it was good I had both in my fridge for the week. Try both and let me know which you like best!
I like to fill my energy balls with all the vital necessities. So I throw in some Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, pun intended, adaptogens, and a little Sacha Inchi protein powder. Blueberries are anti-inflammatory and they improve memory!
