Commonly called nut butter balls, there is no reason you cant make herbal treats with out chocolate as well. We have had some excellent recipes this month using chocolate and herbs but you can make nut butter versions as well (chocolate optional).
Ingredients (bare minimum)
- 1 cup nut butter of your choice (almond, peanut, sunflower)
- 1 cup honey or agave syrup (both for texture and sweetness)
- 50-75g herbs finely powdered (you can open up capsules if you need to)
Other tasty ingredients (add as much or as little as you would like)
- Chocolate Chips
- Coconut Flakes
- Cocoa Powder
- Other Chopped Nuts
If your dough gets too dry, add more honey/agave. Depending on your daily dosage of your herbs, separate your mixture into balls and roll. It is great to freeze half of your truffles and keep the rest in the refrigerator. You may want to choose to roll your balls in the coconut flakes or the cocoa powder. I generally aim to make about 25 balls which gets me 2-3g of my herbs in each one. You can also half that and take 2 a day.
Here are some herbal blends to consider or make your own with the help of a practitioner
