Herbal Tonic Treats
Makes: 12-24 balls
2 cups mixed nuts/ seeds or 2 cups of nut butter (we used pepitas, sunflowers, walnut, cashews)
½ cup oats
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup apricot/ dates
1/4c. hemp seeds
¼ tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1-2 tablespoons powdered reishi, or spirulina ( or other powders)
2-3 tsp honey, depending on sweetness preference.
½ cup almond butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/4th cup liquid: herbal tinctures*, almost milk, hemp milk, etc.
*For medicinals balls; Urban Moonshine lists the recommended dose and a note to follow the following instructions:
For Immune Zoom, Joy Tonic, Simmer Down Tonic: Make 12 balls
For Immune Tonic and Energy Tonic: make 24 smaller balls
For Bitters, half the recipe above and make 24 smaller balls
In a food processor, combine the ingredients one at a time and blend until smooth, add in the herbal tinctures and mix until well combined- but don't over mix.
The consistency should be thick enough to make into balls but not dry enough so that they fall apart. Don’t be afraid to add more nut butter/ honey to get the consistency you want.
Roll into balls and roll into coconut flakes, or hemp seeds.
Store in a Tupperware in the fridge.
