Weetbix Bliss Balls & Breakfast Ideas


Sharing is caring!

I’ve always been a fan of wheat biscuits as a basic breakfast cereal for kids, they are low in sugar, low in salt and a nice quick and easy option for families.

You do not have to have them in the traditional way in a bowl with milk, you can totally mix it up a bit, it doesn’t have to get complicated though, it can still stay super easy.

3 of my fav ways of serving countdown wheat biscuits are in Bliss Balls, in smoothies and as toasts.

No Date Bliss Balls made with Weetbix

 Weetbix add great bulk to bliss balls, so you can cut down on the amount of dried fruit you are adding to the mix. It’s also a great way to use up the crumbs at the bottom of the box!

Weetbix  are fortified with iron and cocoa and raisins are also naturally rich in iron, so these no date bliss balls are a great way to boost kids iron intakes too

Being nut free this recipe is also perfect for the lunchbox
