These little vegan energy balls are packed with energy and protein but are yet so sweet and make for a great snack or healthy dessert. It’s like eating raw brownie dough that is actually good for you too! I love making those and keeping them in the freezer for a go-to snack when I’m craving a little something sweet but still want to eat healthy. They are a great pre or post workout for a good boost of energy. If you do not like coconut, you can also roll the balls in hemp hearts, which are great source of Omega 3. Below are some of the many health benefits of these little balls.
