Feel Good Food – Nutritionally Beneficial
Our snacks are a ‘feel good food’ because we believe that natural foods taste fantastic. Whether you are pushing yourself to the limits or just need a healthy pick-me-up, you can rely on ‘Bakes and Balls’ to make you feel good.
Handmade in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales (figure that one out!) 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 don’t ‘bulk out’ our recipes with fillers and cheap substitutes. Our ingredients are carefully selected for their taste, texture and their nutritional benefits. However, we have changed the recipes and have been able to boost the protein! Open the nutrition tab for full details.
There are so many mixed messages and contradictory reports regarding ‘superfoods’ that it can be difficult to make the right decisions. We are currently working on giving you a run-down of our ingredients and why we use them. In the meantime, I find Dr Axe a reliable source information
Feel Good Food – Sustainable and Fairly Traded ingredients – and more
We use organic and fairly traded products wherever we can. 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 matter!
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Bula Batiki is used to help bind the balls together. There are numerous Coconut Oil companies out there, but no others can claim an aim as simple as this: “to establish a sustainable source of income for the rural island of Batiki in Fiji.” To find out more, click here.
The Coffee in the Coffee, Mango and Goji Super Balls is sourced by Bruce and Luke’s of Carlisle 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!
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; unlike most cocoa; this is taken from bean to bar in-country; unlike most cocoa you can even eat the 100% cocoa bar. It truly is an exceptional product and makes all the difference to our Chocolate Orange Energy Balls and our Frocolate Spread, which has been shortlisted for TWO Nourish Awards!
In addition to using freeze-dried fruits, we use Holy Llama’s Spice Drops to help give our energy balls their fresh clean flavours. They contain no preservatives and their philosophy is simple – they create products which are pure, natural, ethical and sustainable.
We may only be a young company but we are proud to support projects both locally in Cumbria and further afield. We are directly involved in the Kendal People’s Cafe – an exciting food-waste project that won the award for Community Innovation in the Cumbria Life Food and Drink Awards 2018.
We ahave just started work on a fundraising project with Dallaglio Rugby Works to support mentoring andskills development project with young people in the North West. We will be donating 20p from the sale of each pack of Super Balls to the project with a goal of raising £15,000 every year to support a school.
A New Format!
There are now six energy balls in a packet – each one the perfect size to pop in your mouth and keep you going – whether it is on a walk, bike-ride, kayak trip (we are working on a refillable, reusable waterproof container) or simply running round chasing your tail! The change to six balls in a packet has come about through direct customer feedback – we have been listening and are delighted to make this change.
Snack on them during the day, whenever you feel yourself flagging, instead of reaching for a less healthy alternative!
