Hazelnut Protein Balls


Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Balls

Holy bliss balls, you guys!!! My favorite little gem of a dessert and so delicious!

Hazelnuts - my favorite nuts! They always bring me back to my childhood - memories of foraging in the woods with my family. We used to take family trips to the forest to pick mushrooms, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and pine nuts. The best part about it? Everything was free!!!!

This is a super simple recipe, using stevia as a sweetener. I added some maca powder for balanced hormones. Great for making in large batches and freezing.
