What do I do when I don't have to work on my birthday?? I experiment in the kitchen of course!! Today I turn 30, and I have so many mix emotions!! If you're interested in reading my full birthday post, head to my private page @melissa__eaton as I've posted it there.
But this arvo I made these! Someone asked me recently if I had anything nut free, and you know what, I hardly had anything! I love using nuts as the base for my recipes but considering I like to cater to those with allergies and intolerances, I really need to expand my repertoire 💁 so my birthday experimenting resulted in these... COCONUT, LEMON & HONEY (or rice malt syrup) raw energy balls. Tbh I would like to improve the texture but I am happy with the flavour so will share the recipe, and update it when I make them again!
They're raw, NUT, dairy, gluten and refined sugar free. And only have 4 ingredients!! I haven't tried them with RMS yet but I'm sure they will still work! Recipe 👇🏽
Happy Wednesday! 😘
