Christmas energy balls

Well, everything prepared, planned and ready for Christmas?

So close to the festive days we want to provide you with some energy and Christmas flavors. Our Christmas energy balls provide you with good nutrients and energy without bringing refined sugar into play.

Even after Christmas they are a great source of energy and remind you of the merry time with a little gingerbread spice.

Because they are rolled in cocoa powder, they are also reminiscent of truffles and therefore don’t taste extremely sweet.

But what should we tell any further, just try it out yourself!
