Sometimes it’s hard to find something different to add to the kids lunch boxes, they have their usual sandwich, a piece of fruit, vegetables sticks and some baking, but there are days where they want something a little more and I am loving the ‘balls‘ that I have been making lately. Not only are they great to have on hand as a quick snack, they have been a great filler to the kids lunchbox too.
If your school has a nut free policy reader Megan suggests: To make it nut-free, you could just increase the dessicated coconut, or replace the almond meal with crushed oats, flaked quinoa, rice puffs, or corn flakes. I think some sort of puffed grain would work nicely. Maybe even amaranth or millet if you can find it (they have more protein than rice).
Coconut oil (I used extra virgin) can be found at your local health food shop, or possibly in the health food section at your local supermarket. Read here how our community use it.
