Chocolate Energy Balls

Everyone knows those lows during a day, where you are craving for something sweet and delicious. For such lows, I usually prepare energy balls. They are quickly prepared over the weekend, and you can have a large variety.  If you use high-quality ingredients, they are also packed with vital substances e.g. protein or iron.

So I guess enough reasons to have a snack like that 🙂
