Coconut Breakfast Balls

When it comes to eating breakfast, I’ll be the first to admit I don’t have the best habits. I tend to skip it because I’m either too tired or busy to cook anything up. I prefer to make something ahead of time that’s easy to prepare and healthier, like easy coconut balls so I put a twist on them and came up with these Coconut Breakfast Balls.

I am doing my best to keep my refined sugar levels to a minimum, and when I start my day out right I find that I keep it up throughout the day. I’ve been experimenting with Weetabix over the past few weeks on some yummy breakfast recipes and snacks and came up with a couple to show off.

Why Weetabix?

It’s simple, Weetabix is made with four ingredients. It contains the nutrients that I need to run a blog, achieve my fitness goals and chase a busy toddler around all day. Just two biscuits is packed with whole grain goodness. Let’s not forget to mention it has 4g of fibre, only 2g of sugar, and is 130 calories. In case you’re wondering it’s also non-GMO certified.

Here's one of my fav morning snacks: 2 Weetabix 1 tbsp coconut peanut butter (yes, it exists!) Sprinkle of shredded coconut

There are so many options when it comes to using Weetabix: serving it with cereal, spreading it with your favorite nut butter (pictured above), or creating something new altogether (just like my Coconut Breakfast Balls).

  9. I have never heard of Weetabix . You post a lot of healthy recipes on your blog, which I think is great. I will have to make these, but where do I buy the Weetabix?

    • Hi Julie,

      It’s in the cereal aisle. It adds a nice little crunch, if you can’t find it maybe try Rice Krispies or it’s perfectly fine without. Thanks for stopping by. I do my best to post healthier recipes but I still like to post the odd treat 🙂
