We have another brilliant recipe from our friend at Sophie Sutton Nutrition – take a look at these delicious date and walnut energy balls.

Here’s a really quick, healthy snack recipe. These date and walnut energy balls only take a few minutes to make in the blender. They are great to have on hand when working from home to make sure you have healthy treats in the house. Most ingredients you can find in the store cupboard (you can adapt and replace with different nuts etc).
