Raw Vegan Prune Powerballs

Variety is the spice of life, thus The Wholesome Athlete has brought back into our kitchen a fruit that most of us likely don’t pay much attention to. Prunes get such a bad wrap – maybe it’s because they’re black, shriveled and slimy but in any case, they’re really good for you. These are high in Vitamin A, K, B and Potassium.
