Gluten Free Cocoa-Coconut Energy Balls - Coeliac Sanctuary

Posted On: 12th January 2019

I have a very sweet tooth so I am always looking for ways to curb the cravings for chocolate. These energy balls are naturally gluten free, accidentally vegan, packed with nutrients, are refined sugar free and need no cooking. They are a more healthy alternative to chocolate and sweets and really hit the spot.
