Broccoli And Brazil Nut Protein Balls are so simple to make and can be eaten raw or baked.

I prefer to bake mine.

They will keep in an airtight container for a week so perfect for snacking.

Raw or baked they are simply delicious and taste like a mouthful of goodness!

This recipe makes 8-10 medium sized balls.

  7. Roll the balls around in the sesame seeds to coat them.

I’ve found they will happily eat these little balls of goodness.

Because the veg is hidden deep inside!
