*TIP – You need to mould them into balls by squeezing and holding them into shape. It’s kind of a meditative experience to allow some time…Once refrigerated they set and hold together well due to the re-hardening of the coconut oil, cocoa butter and Manuka honey. This is a high fibre snack that is filling due to the psyllium and linseed meal. The nuts and fats are energy sustaining and help to balance blood sugar levels. This is a low sugar snack with only 1.6g of sugar per ball. Great for kids and adults. Makes 33 balls.
