Almond & Cacao Energy Balls - Raw Vegan
Updated: Feb 24, 2019
For my birthday this year i made a dessert table rather than one cake.. i had so many ideas and didn't know what to make, so i made everything ! To accommodate everyone taste, i prepared vegan treats, gluten dairy free and also the normal sugary ones.
we had those raw vegan energy balls, chocolate hazelnut brownies, mini berries muffins, lot of donuts and lazy cake !
The Almond and Cacao energy balls were inspired by deliciously Ella, i love her account and the plant based recipes she shares. Those are now my favorite snack, very easy and quick to make and you can cover them with melted chocolate, crunchy nuts or just have them as they are. I made minor changes to Ella's recipe, i reduced the amount of dates and added more almond butter and almonds because i love the almond taste and wanted to got more of it.
