Cinnamon Energy Balls

I found this recipe from a friend who got it from another essential oil lover – santeeoils.com.  These not only make a great dessert for a party they are great to have on hand when you need a boost of energy!   Because of the oatmeal, peanut butter and natural sugars they are slow burning which prevents a spike in your blood sugar.  Blood sugar spikes are always followed by a drop which makes you HUNGRY!   The coconut and flaxseed provide some special antiviral and omega 3 fatty acids while the vanilla is helpful in dealing with stress.  doTERRA Cinnamon Essential Oil:Cinnamon detoxifies the digestive system and stimulates brain function.  Clinical studies have linked cinnamon consumption to lowered blood sugar.  Cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory compounds that can help relieve arthritis pain.

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats

½ cup organic peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice (no sugars added though)

1/3 cup organic honey

1 cup coconut flakes or shredded , unsweetened

½ cup ground flaxseed

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 drops doTERRA Cinnamon Bark CPTG Essential Oil or you can use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (won’t get as much of the cinnamon flavor though)

Optional: Nuts, dark chocolate chips, dried fruit, anything you might like

Directions

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Roll into teaspoon sized balls.
  • Eat them up! The recipe above makes 34 mini-balls at only 72 calories each!   I double it every time and sometimes make the balls a bit larger  – of course those have more calories!
