Think RAW... and ‘rabbit food’ might spring to mind!
Now, it’s not that we’re not BIG fans of the crudité, but there is much, much more to eating RAW than carrot sticks...as these yummy protein balls go to prove!
Packed with raw food ingredients, they are an example of the kind of no-bake treats you can make with some simple, uncooked ingredients. One of these ingredients - which we might not necessarily associate with being ‘raw’ - is HONEY.
Raw honey differs from conventional honey in that it retains the active ingredients otherwise destroyed by pasteurising. This includes the natural antibiotic, antiseptic and antiviral properties.
We used BAL Honey for our recipe, which is harvested from wild mountain flowers and rare herbs which grow in the pollution free mountains of the Kyrgyz Republic. The honey is unfiltered and unpasteurised, meaning its health properties have been retained. @balhoneyuk are ably to verify this all-important ‘active’ component though independent Laboratory tests carried out in the UK.
