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!

ENERGY BALLS: bolinhas energéticas para turbinar seu treino

Olá meus amores, tudo bem?

Eu sei que faz tempo que não apareço por aqui na versão Português então por isso vim aqui compartilhar uma receitinha deliciosa que fiz semana passado e foi maior sucesso lá em casa!

Pra quem não sabe, as energy balls são literalmente “bolinhas de energia” e são super populares aqui nos EUA (tem em quase todos os cafés/restaurantes naturais). Elas são uma delícia e é uma ótima opção de pré-treino ou lanchinhos dependendo do seu plano alimentar!

Por gostar tanto resolvi inventar a minha própria receita de “energy ball” com os meus ingredientes favoritos. E já aviso que os amantes de pasta de amendoim vão adorar!!
