    Second recipe for energy balls in the row, but some of you have been waiting for it. It’s the recipe I prepared at the Bio Festival‘s Live Cooking Show, along with the superfoods energy balls. I know that those of you who watched the workshop, were thrilled about it, so this is it!

    Most energy balls recipes are based on dates. But today we use dried apricots for their color and, of course, their taste. Pairing them with ginger, turmeric and coconut is really a great combo!

    This recipe is based on golden milk for which we have talked about in another post. You will find golden milk’s most important ingredients in this recipe, so these energy balls not only boost our energy but also do us good! ? Let’s see the recipe:
