Raw Hazelnut, Cacao & Rose Energy Balls

Raw energy balls are absolutely a fave category of recipes on this website and I'm not surprised. Sweet, yummy, nourishing and easy to make. What's not to love? And these real food bursts of energy that I've created just in time for Valentine's Day are no exception.

I've been loving hazelnuts more than usual lately and wanted to team them up with chocolate (always a good idea!) and the most romantic of all flower essences - rosewater.

Creating these energy balls reminded me of:

  • Just how simple it is to make them
  • How well they store [I like mine in the freezer], and
  • How awesome and practical it is to have ready-made treats on hand!

I know you too will love them, whether you're planning to enjoy them solo, share with a loved one, bestie or the whole office! They'll certainly love you forever...
