Favourite Nuts

Although these Cacao Nut Balls are coated with hazelnuts and toasted coconut, you can always swap it up with your favourite nuts like ground walnut, pecan or even pistachios would be a nice treat.  I have a love of hazelnut, probably for my love of nutella that I don’t enjoy any longer 🙁

When to Make These Cacao Nut Balls…

These balls only need a handful of ingredients and only 15 minutes of your time.  These are great for a before workout power snack or they go great with my morning coffee for a little pick me up when I didnt get enough sleep.  They are so good you just might end up eating them all in one sitting, so be careful to limit yourself to make them last.
