A Note From Taesha:
If there has ever been a ray of sunshine and positivity in the blogging world, it is Kelsey from Little Bits of Real Food. Kelsey is the brilliant blogger behind Sweet Potato Toast (true story) and her blog (and Instagram stories) is one of my favorite blogs to hit when I need some inspiration or just a good laugh. I adore her balanced approach to real food eating and her recipes are always on a new level of awesome. I’m dazzled that Kelsey is my guest blogger today on The Natural Nurturer and she is generously sharing her recipe for these drool-worthy Banana Chocolate Chip Energy Balls.
I am so excited to be guest posting on The Natural Nurturer today! Taesha is such a light in this blogging world – but if you are here you probably know that! I can’t wait for you guys to see the fun work Taesha is putting together for you now, but in the meantime, it’s time for some energy balls! I absolutely love whipping up a batch of energy balls whenever I have time and always keep them in the freezer. My base is always dates and almond flour, then I add in new flavors and dried fruits to mix it up. Today I threw in banana chips and a mini chocolate chips to make one of my favorite flavor combos. I don’t know about you but I am a huge lover of chocolate covered frozen bananas – so freezing these energy balls reminds me of that!
These energy balls are perfect for anytime of the day – to go with your breakfast, to have post workout, or even as a delicious dessert! I hope you guys make it and love it and be sure to check out my site Little Bits Of Real Food for more fun and clean treats like this!
