About the Recipe

Spring is just around the corner, and with a change of season also comes a change in schedule. With more sunshine, you tend to want to get out more, become busier and have more places to get to in a hurry. But just because you’re in a rush, that doesn’t mean that you have to compromise you health by choosing foods that lower your vibration, rather than raise it!
When I’m on-the-go — whether it’s travelling in my car to go visit my family that lives out of town, or out and about running errands — I always like to have some quick and easy snack options that I can just pop into my mouth. No fuss, no muss!
These salted dark chocolate energy balls are just that!
Not only do they make a great ‘on-the-go’ snack, but are also a delicious, and decadent treat that comes without a sugar rush.
For all my chocolate lovers, you really can have it all with these!
Made with a black bean and date base, they super filling and nutritious. They’ve got a super simple ingredient list and if you do baking of any kind… you will likely already have most of these ingredients in your pantry.
To fancy them up, drizzle a little bit of melted dark chocolate or sprinkle with some chopped nuts!
Not a fan of chocolate? We’ve got you covered. These strawberry shortcake energy balls are another great on-the-go alternative.
