Try These Balls For A Tasty Energy Boost!

“Now, the best part, it’s time to taste my balls!”, says Donal Skehan and judging by the sumptuous ingredient list, he’s probably right. Skehan is a former boy band member and current food writer, who has a new cookbook due out this month focusing on energy-boosting recipes like these delicious chocolate energy balls.

These balls are a study in contrasts, combining espresso, maple syrup, dates, and almond butter for a mix that is high in caffeine, natural sugars, and flavor. But if the balls didn’t go down easy we wouldn’t bother to try them, which is why Donal rolls the finished product in cocoa powder and cocao nibs for a tasty final coating. Those are some great-looking balls, Donal!
