Who doesn’t love the smell and taste of Cinnamon?

Cinnamon Bark Essential oil is so versatile. It is  both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.

I like to add 1 drop of Essential Oil to flavour my healthy treats and smoothies, and to also get the great health benefits.

Remember, It is very very potent! A drop goes a long way.

Ingredients

1 cup roasted almonds

1 cup roasted cashews

8 dates

1 Tbls Tahini Paste

2 Tbls Cacao Powder

1 Tbls Coconut flour (or 2 Tbls shredded coconut)

2 Tbls Coconut Oil

1/4 cup of water

1 drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil *

1 Tlbs Cacao Nibs

 

*if you don’t have the Cinnamon oil, 1 tsp of cinnamon powder will work just fine.

 

Instructions

  1. Place dates into a food processor and blend until smooth
  2. Add all the other ingredients, except water and cacao nibs
  3. Blend for a few seconds and then start adding the water
  4. When the mixture is ready, add the cacao nibs and pulse a couple of times
  5. Roll into balls (makes around 20) and decorate with shredded coconut (you can also top with cacao nibs and goji berries)
  6. Store in the fridge
