1/3 c. organic almond butter
1/3 c. organic shredded coconut
2 TBS dark chocolate chips
2 TBS chia seeds
2 TBS raw organic cashews
8 pitted organic dates
Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
10 drops Tangerine or Wild Orange Oil

Pulse all the ingredients together in a Cuisinart, and then form into balls. Makes about 16 irresistibly delicious high-protein, low glycemic power balls. This one is a winner!

TANGERINE OIL can benefit the immune system, the skin and our emotions. It’s an anti-inflammatory, a digestive aid, an anticoagulant a creativity enhancer and a mood uplifter. It’s also a stress eraser.  WILD ORANGE, like it’s smaller cousin, shares antidepressant, antibacterial, digestive, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It goes without saying, but please be sure to use 100% pure oil that’s guaranteed to be free of pesticides, herbicides, contaminants, synthetic fillers, etc. since you will be ingesting it! You could zest an orange or a tangerine, but the pure oil is much stronger and more flavorful because it takes about seventy fruits to make just one drop of oil.
