    4. Separate into Tablespoon sized sections and roll them into balls.

Et Voila! Your batch of delicious Chocolate Candy Cane Energy Balls is complete and oh so delicious! Bring them to a holiday party as an easy finger food dessert, or refrigerate them and keep for festive and energizing snacks to get you through the week, while distracting you from the other, less healthy options surrounding you this season!

Note: This recipe can easily be tinkered around with to cater to anyones taste with flavors like Peanut Butter/Cinnamon, Vanilla Bean, Coconut, Cookie dough etc! 

The holidays seem to be the biggest time of the year to be “lenient” with health. The main reason being that it is your last chance to be “naughty” before New Years and the inevitable rushed New Year resolution!

Why not enjoy your food AND your health? It is so simple when adopting a whole foods, plant based diet.  You will feel no guilt or shame with this lifestyle but also no restriction or “FOMO” (fear of missing out!) - we eat the best foods and have recipes for any and all types of foods you can imagine!

Like this one for my Chocolate Candy Cane Energy Balls! They are full of everything your body wants and needs and nothing it doesn't!
