Energy balls, bliss balls, protein balls, raw this and raw that balls! I couldn’t decide what to call mine, so I went for ‘nutty cacao energy balls’, because, well that’s what they are!

These give the perfect texture, they are soft but not too soft, have a little bite and a crunch from the cacao nibs. I challenge you to stop at just the one!

  • Serves:15-20 balls
