Recipe: Power Balls

powerballs

Every home needs a protein-packed snack that is not loaded with sugar or salt. I discovered a snack that’s not only good for you… it enhances your immune system… gives you energy… and it’s delicious! This recipe was adapted from a similar recipe I found on the doTERRA website called Power Bites. I renamed it Power Balls because it’s easier for me to remember 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 1 cup shredded coconut, divided
  2. 1 cup almond butter
  3. 1 cup dried cranberries (Craisins work)
  4. 1/2 cup honey or agave or maple syrup
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 cup granola, crushed
  7. 3 drops On Guard (orange, cinnamon, clove) essential oil

Mix all ingredients well… add more granola if it’s too moist to form balls. Form into small balls and roll in coconut to coat. Refrigerate. Yum!

To make this gluten-free, just make sure the granola is gluten-free, or substitute the granola with chia (or other) seeds.
