This recipe is one of my favorite and a real Magnesium boost! This makes a delicious healthy snack, perfect when you want to indulge in chocolate therapy.
Cacao powder – the real cacao powder from cacao bean, is high in magnesium and anti-oxidant – it increases your tolerance to stress, relieves fatigue and slows down the ageing process. Added to the magnesium-rich almonds and sesame seeds, it gives you a real boost.
Don’t forget that you are using up a lot of magnesium when under stress, and you need magnesium to keep our energy up!

1- Soaked almonds overnight and dates one hour prior to making the balls.

Notes: you can add a scoop of quality protein powder (pea protein or fermented rice is good for vegetarian) to ensure stable blood sugar levels and further contribute to stress relief.
