I am sleeeeeepy this morning. Last night I popped some NyQuil since I’ve been waking up with a sore throat in the mornings this past week. My husband had food poisoning (but maybe it was the stomach flu) then I ended up seeing 50 Shades Darker with a few friends who were coughing a bit, so I finally caught something. Damn winter. It’s seriously the pits. So I’m having a hard time keeping my eyes open to write this post. No seriously, I keep falling asleep every 4 words. This post may be short lived….

PaleOMG Mocha Hazelnut Energy Balls

So instead of talking about what’s going on in life, let’s just talk about these balls. I’ve become obsessed with making energy balls as a little treat. I’ll make them, keep them in the fridge, and eat them as a treat after dinner before I head off to bed. I seriously love them right now! And I linked a couple others that I’ve made so you should totally make those, too! Have a little ball party! Have a ball of a time! HA! See what I did there?!

OMGIWANTTOSEEBEAUTYANDTHEBEASTSOBAD!! I’m seriously counting down the days until Beauty and The Beast comes out. I couldn’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen the cartoon version and I think Emma Watson is going to crush it. I get chills every time I see the commercial? How weird is that?

Ok, that’s literally all my brain can handle today. I’ve fallen asleep already 6 times while writing this post. Sickness is so gross. I hate it. Ok, love you, bye bye, see you tomorrow, tomorrow will be better, go kick Thursday’s ass!

    Hey Juli! I tried making these last night and for some reason they didn’t combine properly. They were still liquidy and I couldn’t form them into balls. I just popped them on a sheet pan and let them sit in the fridge (and they still taste delish!) but I’m wondering what I did wrong so I can fix it for next time? The only thing I can think of is not pulsing it in the food processor long enough? I’m a food processor newbie so this would make the most sense haha. Thanks for your help!

      i’m not totally sure. did you miss the shredded coconut because that really helps it combine. but not sure why it would be liquidy!
