Super easy hazelnut chocolate balls that taste like Nutella! Healthy energy balls made with just 4 simple ingredients.
Have you ever tried Nutella? It’s this rich, creamy and oh-so sweet spread that’s made out of hazelnuts, cocoa powder and sugar. It’s ridiculously indulgent and one of the most beloved dessert spreads out there.
Only problem? It’s a bit unrealistic to eat everyday… and a bit dangerous for some of us to keep on hand (I’m looking at your Erik!) Erik and I found a healthier version made with whole ingredients, blah blah blah, but it turns out that was still too dangerous to keep on hand…
So guess what I came up with? Healthy nutella balls that you (and me and Erik, ahem!) can enjoy any time, any day… without any of the guilt. 😉 Think: decadent hazelnut chocolate balls, without the maxed out sugary vibes, and with the energy boost from healthy fats.
You in? Let’s no bake this!
