The day I turned 25 was the start of a crazy crazy time…WEDDING SEASON. I love them not only because I get to see people in my life so in love, but that I have an excuse to dance my ass off for 5 hours straight. Need a dance party starter? HIRE ME! I’ll get the party started :P

I’m super excited to be going to Chicago this weekend for my cousin’s wedding. There’s nothing better than a family wedding because you know half the crowd. The brother, sister, sister boy and I are all making the 8 hour drive down from Minneapolis to Champaign (okay, not quite Chicago). Yayyyy road trips. All I have to say is thankkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk the lawd I have balls to snack on.

My brother requested that I make him an Oreo-stuffed brownie cookie cake, but instead I shall bring him some Healthy Nutella Energy Balls. Aw yeah…sorry broski. 

These balls are glorious. I didn’t actually use any Nutella whatsoever in them, but all the Nutella flavors are involved…

Yup, these have kale in them.

What?

Yah, just kidding. I sorta like to throw curveballs in every once in a while to see if anyone is actually reading what I say :D

Instructions

  1. Place hazelnuts in a high-speed food processor and process on high for about a minute or until you’ve created a meal.
  2. Add in dates, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt and process on high for 1 to 2 more minutes, or until the dates have been pulverized into little pieces.
