Vegan Cheesy Sausage Balls

A makeover of a childhood favorite. Instead of using pre-mixed flour or loading it with trans fats like partially hydrogenated soybean oil, make your own vegan cheesy sausage balls in a flash with simple plant-based ingredients. Fiber-filled beans provide hunger-zapping satiety, while plant-based Nuzest supports your hard-earned muscle mass.
