It’s Christmas…in my mouth!

You already know that I always need a snack and I’m obsessed with everything sweet, yummy and easy to make. Therefore, I had to create a raw energy ball that embodies everything I love about Christmas.

Thanks to the dates, the Christmas Energy Balls are super gooey and hold together just perfectly. For me, the combination of apples and almonds are a classic winter and Christmas combination. Of course, what makes these Christmas Energy balls so christmassy are all the spices. When you take a bite, you have the a Christmas explosion in your mouth!

This recipe is such an easy way to make yourself a healthy treat without compromising on any of the Christmas flavours. I made them the other day for some friends and they were literally gone in a minute. Everybody just loved them and I hope so will you!

Would love to see your creation so if you make my recipes use #nathaliescuisine or tag me on Instagram and I will repost your picture.

Happy Holidays!
