Chocolate – Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Hello Friday…

Hope you had a great week and is ready to enjoy the weekend!!

Since I’ve came to the U.S. I noticed that “energy balls” are much more popular  here than it is in Brazil, and I have been eating them a lot more than I was used to. So guess what happened? Now I am addicted to them and decided to come up with my own recipe so I can have whenever I want 🙂

My PB Dark Chocolate Energy Balls are total success at the house (even Thiago likes them) and they’ve became my favorite pre-workout snack w/ a cup of coffee of course!
