Are you a snacker? I have to confess that I am a bit of a snackaholic and haven’t been able to give them up since going low-carb a few years ago. I don’t really try anymore as there are lots of great low-carb snack options. The recipes for fat bombs are great but sometimes they are just too rich to eat for afternoon tea! Enter Energy Balls….

Something lighter like these Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Energy Balls are just the thing. They are light and airy but with a lovely creamy texture. You only need 5 ingredients and each ball has 2g of net carbs. Not bad at all.

Apart from being an excellent snack, these energy balls are great for kids parties or as an after dinner treat.

The sweetness of the strawberries used will make a big difference to the flavor. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of sweetener and then taste the processed mixture to see if you need to add more. When strawberries are really sweet, you may not need any sweetener at all, so feel free to leave it out altogether.

For more information on choosing a low-carb sweetener, check out our post: Low-Carb Pantry Essentials.


Low-carb cooking for kids


The kids are also a big fan of these so make a double batch so everyone can enjoy them. They can get involved by rolling the mixture into balls and coating them in the shredded coconut. It’s an easy recipe to get the kids into cooking and have a bit of fun. Just be prepared to have shredded coconut all over the place!

You’ll love this recipe if you want something uncomplicated that can be prepared in 15-20 minutes. They are the perfect snack when you need something to get you through the afternoon. I like to have one or two with my afternoon coffee. Low-Carb Strawberry Cheesecake Energy Balls would also be great to serve when friends come over or after dinner.
