These quick and simple energy balls are perfect for anyone who's always on the go, or finds themselves sending a fortune on shop brought snacks. The combination of nuts, dates and puffed quinoa make for a protein packed, sweetly satisfying ball of yumminess, perfectly filling the hunger shape hole that magically appears at 11 and 3.
