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!Ā 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 šŸ™‚

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 cupĀ granola, crushed
  7. 3 drops On Guard (orange, cinnamon, clove)Ā 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.

Recipe: Killer Healthy Fudge

I did not invent this recipe but I named it. This killer fudge is made with healthy ingredients like coconut oil (instead of butter) and agave syrup (instead of sugar). But the ingredient that really puts this fudge over the top is the peppermint oil (I use doTERRA because I trust that it’s safe and even beneficial to ingest).

From the book Modern Essentials

Peppermint Healthy Fudge

  • 1 1/2 c. coconut oil
  • 1 1/4 c. agave
  • 1 c. cocoa powder
  • 1/2 t. sea salt
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 2 drops peppermint essential oil (I used doTERRA)

Warm coconut oil until liquid. Combine all ingredients and mix well. (The recipe called for a blender but I just hand-mixed and that worked fine) Pour into 8 x 8 baking dish and spread evenly.Ā Chill at least a couple of hours before slicing.

Can’t wait to serve this at my upcoming open house!
