A couple of weeks ago, I shared my recipe for Milo Weet-Bix Balls… they’re SOOO good… but they’re also the ‘naughty’ version of these Healthy Weet-Bix Balls. And so, I thought to keep things nice and balanced, I’d share this recipe too!

These are just as simple as the cheeky version, but they’re certainly a heck of a lot healthier! They’re also the perfect lunch box snack… nut-free, freezer-friendly and super yummy.

These Healthy Weet-Bix Balls are naturally sweetened by the medjool dates and the honey… YUM! I also like to add sultanas to my mixture as well, but you can totally leave them out if you’re not a fan.

    Made these with gf Weet-Bix for my coeliac son. He’s fussy and not a fan,but my 1 year old LOVES them. Will definitely be making it regularly in our house.

  2. Kylie says:

    Could you substitute the honey for rice malt syrup or maple syrup?

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Kylie, yes you can! Rice malt syrup would be the better substitute as it’s thicker/stickier than maple syrup. x
