There are 2 big dietary obstacles people face. #1 is Time. Time for meal/snack prep, which leads to #2: unhealthy, convenient snacks during the day. Healthy snacking does not have to be time consuming nor does it have to be less appetizing as its unhealthy counterpart. Having a healthy snack on hand can help you make better food choices that align with your personal wellness goals, avoid the afternoon slugs and increase energy for your workout. So why not try this no-bake tasty and nutritious Holiday-inspired treat that even your kids can make (with adult supervision of course).

These No-Bake Gingerbread Energy Balls uses ground ginger and molasses to keep the traditional gingerbread taste. The recipe is backed by muscle and bone supporting protein supplied by the cashew butter, flax and optional nuts and vegan protein powder.  Moreover, the fiber from the flax and optional quick oats or shredded coconut makes you feel full longer!
