Hazelnut and Coconut Energy Truffles

DeLICIOUS ENERGY TRUFFLES MADE WITH HAZELNUTS, cacao, flaxseed and coconut – a perfect snack to boost your energy levels when you most need it

This is a very quick and easy to make recipe. The energy truffles are a great choice for picnics, as energy fuel before or after exercise and as a healthy sweet treat. They are gluten free and vegan-friendly.

To make them I used my homemade crunchy hazelnut spread, which is another wonderful recipe to try on its own.

Hazelnuts are an excellent source of energy and dietary fibre which can help you stay full for longer. Thus, you will only need one or two of these yummy balls to satisfy your afternoon cravings and increase your energy levels.

The recipe is as follows:
