Yummy Hazelnut Chocolate Balls (vegan)

Oh goodie, it is getting dark outside and I am ready for a massive amount of post-workday-coziness. It is beginning to look like fall outside, so I decided to light some candles. But what is a

cozy, girlie, fall evening without music? So, I am going all the way and am turning one of my favorite old school songs on: Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohn. Yeeees, now were talking. I am very pleased with my girlie, little self.

This is the perfect setting for writing my next blog post. So here we go. Even though I am committed to a healthy, plant based lifestyle that is mostly low in fat and refined sugar, I still eat a little sweet treat every now and then.

So today I want to share my satisfying, nutty recipe for chocolate hazelnut balls.These little guys are super easy to make, and only require 4 ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need to make this yummy vegan treat:

120 g (4,2 oz) finely ground hazelnuts

3 tsp unsweetened dark cocoa powder

11 g (0,4 oz) white almond butter

2,5 Tbsp maple sirup (or a bit more)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and mix with your hands until a nice mass has developed. Then form little balls, and voila – all done!  Eat right away, or refrigerate up to 2 days.

Love, Peppa:-)
