Time for a healthier way of snacking... - Thrive Nutrition and Health Magazine

Snacking sometimes gets a bad reputation, but it can be a healthy pleasure if you’re conscious about the kinds of snacks you choose. When you’re on the go and your energy levels start flagging it can be tempting to grab something sugary or fatty for a quick fix, and with so much choice out there it’s easy to be tempted by unhealthy options. But snack wisely and you can give your energy levels a healthier, sustained boost.

That’s why our Bakes and Balls are perfect for that healthier option when you need to snack on the go. Packed full of natural ingredients but low in sugar, our products are a healthy alternative when you just need to give hunger the heave ho!

Bakes and Balls is a family business.
The idea came from producing low sugar snack options for our children’s lunch-boxes. I love spending time in the kitchen and experimenting with flavours so the opportunity to combine baking with producing energy balls was a natural one and so Bakes and Balls was born!

Here at Bakes and Balls, our snacks are a ‘feel good food’ for the simple reason that natural foods taste fantastic. Our products are all handmade in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales without using gluten, nuts, dairy, soya and added sugars. They are suitable for those following a Paleo or Vegan diet and Free From all 14 allergens!

We use organic and fairly traded products wherever we can and are working to source ALL of our ingredients organically. We are proud of the fact that we have a moral compass at the heart of all we do – it extends beyond the ‘headlines’ simply because people and communities matter!

The importance of good ingredients!

Bula Batiki Coconut Oil
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Bula Batiki is used to help bind the balls together. Their aim as simple as this: ‘to establish a sustainablesource of income for the rural island of Batiki in Fiji.’ Bula Batiki have recently been awarded organic status too.

Buf Café Coffee from Rwanda
Our Coffee used in the Mango and Goji Super Balls is sourced by from Buf Café in Remera, Rwanda. Buf Café was established by Epiphanie Mukashyaka, who lost her husband in the Rwandan Genocide of 1994, but stayed on to rebuild her coffee farm – a truly inspirational woman!

Chocolate Madagascar
Our Cocoa products come from Chocolat Madagascar who not only produce one of the
finest chocolate products in the world, but are also producers of the world’s fairest chocolate! Unlike most cocoa, this is unalcalised, you can even eat the 100% cocoa bar. It truly is an exceptional product!

So, if you’re looking for a healthy alternative to snack on, be it for breakfast, after the gym or to take to work and stash in your desk. Our Bakes and Balls are guaranteed to give you a natural boost of energy to see you through the day!

Just because you want something with no processed sugars; you should never have to
compromise on taste.
