These look super similar to energy balls… Do they provide the same energy gain? Will be mega if they do as these look far easier to make
I don’t think I’ve had energy balls so I can’t really compare the two. The natural sugar from the dates along with the fat and protein from the nuts will definitely give you some long lasting energy.
This looks so yummy and the picture is great too. Thanks for sharing! I’d definitely be trying this out soon.
Thank you. Enjoy.
Dates to the rescue to help satiate a sweet tooth! These sound delicious. Also, I love pecan anything 🙂
Me too, pecans are so good.

These look so delicious and having them be nutrition at the same time is just a big ole bonus! Thanks for sharing.
