I first learned about making herbal “balls” (I usually call them bites) from Rosemary Gladstar several years ago. Since then, I’ve taken to whipping up a batch of them regularly because I just love snacking on them and I enjoy knowing that I’m not just eating a cookie or something (not that I don’t enjoy a cookie now and then) – instead, I’m eating a nutrient-dense little bite packed with herbs. This particular recipe is one of my favorites for after dinner bites. It’s full of pungent carminative herbs that taste delicious and help support the digestive process.
- 1 part organic sunflower seed butter, unsalted and unsweetened
- 1 part organic raw honey
- 1 part organic oats
- ½ part organic chocolate chips (optional)
- ½ part organic unsweetened toasted coconut flakes
- ½ part organic Ginger powder
- ¼ part organic Cinnamon powder
- Pinch of sea salt
Start by combining equal parts of the nut butter, honey and oats and stir them together well until thoroughly combined. Add in your herb powders and stir, then mix in the chocolate chips (optional) and coconut flakes. Form the bites into small balls and store them in a bowl in the freezer.
What do you like to add to your herb bites?
