Super Healthy Cashew & Date Protein Balls

Jeannette Jackson

Cashew nuts have one of the lowest fat content of any nuts, and the fats they do contain are of the monounsaturated variety found in abundance in the Mediterranean Diet (linked to low cholesterol and reduced heart disease).

The dates in these protein balls also offer nutritional benefit, as they are rich in fibre to help keep your colon healthy. Makes approximately 20.
