Energy balls are a fantastic way to get a quick boost, whether it be to get through a meeting at work, keep you going in between classes or to see you through that challenging 1am – 2am phase of a Netflix marathon when you’re just so close to the end of the series, but your focus is seriously dropping. The pistachios and seeds add texture and depth to the recipe and the very subtle zest from the lemon brings it all together in these lemon date protein balls!
