Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Energy Balls

I don't usually eat protein bars or energy balls on a regular basis but when they taste like Nutella and give a healthy boost as a snack alternative in between meals, I'm all IN!

Give this recipe a try and tell me it's not better than a sugary Timbit or chocolate bar!?

1 cup roasted hazelnuts
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp coconut extract (or vanilla extract)
1/3 cup shredded coconut
12 whole roasted hazelnuts

Place 1 cup hazelnuts, maple syrup, coconut extract and cocoa powder in a food processor and blend until it turns into a large ball.

Remove from food processor and roll into 10-12 balls, placing a whole hazelnut in each

 Dip the balls in the shredded coconut to cover the outside. Place them in the freezer for 10min before eating.
Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
