One of my all-time favorite ‘grab and go’ snacks to make are paleo energy balls. I’ve tried quite a few different recipes for them, and the one I’m going to be sharing today is easily one of the best. It makes chocolate covered paleo brownie energy balls that are simply to die for. The coating on these energy balls is a mouthwatering mix of cacao butter, cacao powder, maple syrup, and hazelnuts. But it’s the homemade filling that really pushes these energy balls to the next level. Trust me on this one guys, you’re going to want to keep this one bookmarked in your favorites.
