No Bake Energy Balls ~Secret Recipe Club Challenge 18th January 2016


This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try it and blog about it. For the month of January my assigned blog is Happy Go Lucky The blog is written by Kara, not only does the blog have lots of recipes  but it also has lots of DIY ideas that are fun to create. I really enjoyed browsing through her blog and wanted to try out all the arts and craft posts but since the secret recipe club is about food I have book marked and will try out the craft ideas at leisure.
Having over indulged over the festive period it is time to get back into shape for the new year.This means eating healthy regular meals. Kara's No bake energy balls were the perfect  for on the go breakfast idea. I recreated them using similar ingredients that I could get in the UK.
