Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Balls

What are the key ingredients?

Dates – Try to choose the softest and juiciest dates that you can find, then they will be easier to blend or soak the dates in a hot water for 10 to 30 minutes. This is my favorite and fastest way to soften dates.
Hazelnuts – Choose the best quality hazelnuts. You can replace them with any other your favorite nuts. If you don’t like the nut pieces in the balls, you can blend separately the halzelnuts until you get the consistency of the flour and add to the blended dates mixture.
Peanut butter – Choose a good quality peanut or other nut butter, which is sugar-free and natural.
Cocoa Powder – This makes the taste of chocolate. You can adjust the cocoa to taste that you like the best, but don’t overdo it, because it could make the balls dry and super chewy.

Are chocolate energy balls a healthy dessert?

Chocolate Energy Ballss are refined sugar-free which isn’t good for health, and only sweetened with dates (natural sweetener). Hazelnuts and peanut putter are healthy and rich in nutrition and good for your body and health. Both contain protein and other useful benefits.
