Almond Coconut Balls

Almond Coconut Balls

Energy balls are healthy small bites packed with highly nutritious ingredients. They are one of the food trends of 2017. With only five ingredients I created a very easy, quick to prepare, and super delicious version of a Raffaello-style energy ball,  a perfect Valentine’s treat for you and your loved one. This is also a great example of a healthy dessert and will help those of us who made a New Year’s resolution of a healthier lifestyle. I’m using almond and coconut, rich in healthy fat, fiber, magnesium, and vitamin E, and organic honey as a sweetener. Did you know that honey has antibacterial properties?

This bread will help us a lot with our carb-free nutrition.

For our recent girls night, I wanted to make a dessert that’s not too sweet and not too high in carbs. That’s when I thought of changing the delicious Italian “Torta al Cioccolato Morbide” into a low-carb “Dark Chocolate Cake with Forest Berry Foam”. The richness of the dark chocolate and the sourness of the berries make a great combination. It was so delicious, and we all liked it. You should give it a try…
