Energy balls in 5 minutes (low carb/vegan/Keto/paleo)

imageHello everybody!

As I said before, these days I make more desserts than food, but these desserts can’t be compared to the desserts we are used to. They have no sugar no processed ingredients or flour, food coloring or anything you cannot pronounce.

These recipes are 100% made out of natural ingredients, usually not more than 5.

They fit perfectly in any kind of diet. These days people fallow all kinds of diets like the low carbohydrate diet, the ketogenic diet, also paleo diet is very popular, not to mention vegan and raw vegan.

So here are the ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of sweetener (I used monk fruit extract)
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • 2 cups of almond flour
  • 1 tbsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract

For toppings:

  • coconut flakes
  • hemp hearts
  • cinnamon
  • cocoa powder

imageDirections:

  1. Mix the 2 tbsp of sweetener with the 2 tbsp of water
  2. add the almond extract and the vanilla extract
  3. add the 2 cups of almond flour
  4. mix them well
  5. form little balls
  6. roll them in the toppings you prefer (coconut, cacao, chocolate, hemp hearts, chia seeds)

Place them in the fridge for 1 hr, but you can serve them immediately too.

Here is the video of how to make them step by step!
