Healthy ANZAC Biscuit Protein Ball Recipe

April 24, 2019

ANZAC biscuits are a huge part of our Australian culture not only on ANZAC Day, but all year round. Sadly the traditional recipe contains high levels of sugar that don’t pair too well with our BFF meal programs, so our dietitians have created a Be Fit Food approved protein ball version that is not only healthier than the traditional bikkies, but equally as tasty!
