SAM’S TIPS:

These are a great afternoon snack. A healthy snack that will give you an afternoon energy hit. Chocolate protein powder could be added to the recipe instead of cacao powder to add some additional protein and help you feel full. However, these are very easy to overeat as they are small and moreish. A good tip is to put 3 small bliss balls into a zip lock bag and keep that as your portion for the day.
