Apricot & Chia Protein Balls

RECIPE BY NATASAHA CORRETT

“These Apricot & Chia Protein Balls make the most delicious protein snack. I love having one after a big workout. They also keep really well in the fridge. Chia seeds are said to be a great source of slow releasing energy. In South America, where they originated from,  when the Aztecs went to battle, they would take a pouch of chia seeds with them for energy. This didn’t weigh them down like other food does.” Tash x
