Ingredients

 

Method

  2. After the thick paste is created with the mixture, take about a tablespoon of the mixture and make the energy balls. If you want smaller Energy ball bites, then use about 1/4 teaspoon for each ball.
  3. We keep them in the fridge to make them firmer.

 

Nutritional and caloric value

Dried dates are the "key" to making sticky energy balls and give a sweet taste like caramel without added sugar. They contain natural sugars, mainly fructose and glucose, which makes them a rich source of energy, ideal for children.

Apples are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that help strengthen the immune system and fight viruses, especially now with the new school year.

Finally, oats are rich in vitamins of the B complex as well as vitamin E which also contribute to strengthening the immune system of children. It contains selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, and antioxidants due to its high content of carotenoids and polyphenols.
