Deliciously Ella has been a recent
blog-and-cook phenomenon, with Ella
Woodward writing about plant-based
diets and following a 'clean eating'
philosophy to help with a health condition.
Deliciously Ella's Energy Balls are gluten
free, the cacao and almond version is
chewy and chocolatey and is made from
only six ingredients including dates, which
make for a slower blood sugar rise than
other forms of carbs or sugars. Each
40g ball contains 4g of protein, 8g of fat,
4g of fibre and 18g carbohydrate. She
encourages you to try these at home,
