The BEST Adaptogenic Brownie Balls

Posted by Marie-Eve Maitland on 22nd Feb 2023

Yes, perfect tasty balls to take before or after a training session (or any other time of the day). And to transform them into a true super food, adding a mushroom powder give your a real boost... and the choocolate covers that taste (this has been trialled at work on little ones too!)

I like to make sure we have some healthy snacks around and homemade is so much better in my opinion because you can adapt it to your taste (change the nuts, add some other ingredients, etc), and you can make then more chocolatey, less sweet, nuttier, it's really up to you.

Any mushroom powders will do - but to help make up your mind...
