Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
  • Doubling/Tripling - this recipe can be doubled or tripled.
  • If your mixture is too crumbly or difficult to roll into balls - add a little water or extra lemon juice to the mixture and blitz again until it comes together easily. 
  • Protein Powder - if adding protein powder, you'll need to add a small amount of extra lemon juice or water until the consistency is stick but firm enough to be able to be rolled into balls.
  • Variations - you can substitute the lemon juice and zest with orange or lime.
  • Storing & freezing - you can store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days and in the freezer for up to two months.
