Dates are a great way to naturally sweeten snacks or desserts as they are packed with fibre and add a creamy caramel flavour. When coming up with snack recipes I always make sure they are balanced with protein, fat and fibre to keep energy levels stable and to help feel full. I love to make up a batch of these super easy bliss balls to get through the week! Whether you pack them in your lunch as an easy snack or keep them in fridge to have while you're making dinner, you'll be happy you have them on hand!

- 1 Cup walnuts
- 6 Dates soaked 6-8 hours
