Peppermint essential oil continues to be one of the best-selling favorites among doTERRA essential oils perhaps for it's versatility having multiple uses in the kitchen and household.
I’m linking this recipe up with We Should Cocoa hosted by Tin & Thyme.
Chocolate Peppermint Bliss Balls
Chocolate Peppermint Bliss Balls are perfect for a quick energy boost or afternoon snack before a day of shopping. These treats are loaded with healthy ingredients and are surprisingly filling with an added health boost from the peppermint essential oil that gives these bliss balls a cooling sensation. I rolled mine a little bit larger but the recipe will make 20-30 depending on the size you roll (more if you roll bite-size pieces).
A neighbour came over just after I made these and she gave a raving review! She said they had a subtle minty taste and a cooling after effect from the Peppermint Essential Oil. I was excited to hear how much she enjoyed them and I would love to hear how you or your guests find them, as well. Let me know in the comments below if you try out the recipe.
This recipe is completely raw (no cooking required) and are great for individuals with with food sensitivities and provide a high amount of daily fiber intake which is something that a lot of people struggle to meet. The dates and craisens are natural binding agents so it's easy to roll them together. Wetting your hands a bit makes the rolling easier!

Tip: Check to make sure the pitted dates you purchased are, in fact, free of pits by coarsely chopping them with a knife.
Fact: Dates provide calcium, zinc, iron, copper, magnesium, calcium and other minerals that may help lower blood pressure, stroke risk and labor complications.
Essential Oils In The Kitchen
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds and products from the seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark and other parts of the plants that may calm the senses, lift one's mood and even purify the air. Many people use essential oils for relaxation and aromatherapy, to soothe skin irritations or ease pain, or even serve as naturopathic medicine.
