To make the energy balls, dampen your hands and roll about a tablespoon of the mixture between your palms to form a bite-size ball. Roll the energy balls with cocoa powder, cocoa nibs or ground almonds.
For best results, chill in the fridge for about an hour before eating. A healthy treat for you, your friends and family.
*I made a little over half of the recipe because I did not have 1 cup of almonds anyway it was so good. Omg, I thought I died and went to heaven. Yum! It served about 27 energy balls depending the size of the energy balls.
