A Post Bank Holiday Pick Me Up

A Post Bank Holiday Pick Me Up

Over did it this bank holiday weekend, in need of a healthy pick me up? Don’t worry the lovely people at Crazy Jack Organic have got in touch and provided me with a super scrumptious, super healthy recipe for raw chocolate and coconut energy balls.

Ideal for fending off that post afternoon slump, keeping those pregnancy cravings at bay or as a healthy treat for your little ones, this recipe is so simple even I couldn’t mess it up.

All you need is a few nutritious ingredients (see list below), a food processor, a tray, a working fridge and a spare 10 minutes, and you’re set to go!
