These hazelnut energy balls are a dream! Hazelnuts and oats are high in magnesium, which helps prevent heart attacks and strokes by relaxing blood vessels, aiding the heart muscle and regulating blood pressure.

This recipe uses 5 simple ingredients and will make approx 25 – 30 energy balls:

2 cup of oats

1 cup of hazelnuts

2 cup of dates

6 tbsp raw cocoa powder

6 tbsp coconut oil – melted

Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Roast hazelnuts for 8 mins. Take out of the oven & rub off most of the skin. This is important as hazelnut skins can add bitterness.

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a sticky dough.

Roll into balls and enjoy! Store these energy balls in an airtight container.
