Fig Fudge Energy Balls

These treats take less than 10 minutes to throw together and are loaded with energy producing foods. Great fuel during the middle of the day or before exercising! Not only are they a good source of carbohydrates, proteins and fats but they're also a good source of electrolytes. For those following a low-carb diet they have 14 grams of net carbohydrates per serving. They're also sinfully delicious - the trick is not to eat to many of them! :-)
