Anti-Aging Energy Balls

Anti-Aging Energy Balls

Holding off aging with the help of herbs makes very deep sense given their healing and nutrition is natural, whole, and unadulterated. Rosemary Gladstar is considered a “national treasure” as a leading and visionary herbalist. In her book Family Herbal she offers her recipe for herbal energy balls. She believes that they help to restore and promote energy, health, and vitality, the three faces she believes make up well-being.

Elder Energy Balls
Tahini or other nut butter
1 part organic American or Asian ginseng
1 part astragalus
1 part hawthorn berry
1 part fo-ti
1 part Siberian Ginseng
part guarana
Carob or chocolate chips (optional)
Coconut (optional)
Lycium berries or raisins (optional)
Slivered almonds (optional)
Carob powder

1. Mix equal parts of tahini and honey, or mix to taste (you may prefer less honey and more tahini, for example).

2. Combine the powdered herbs. Add enough of them to the tahini-honey mixture to make a thick batter or paste.

3. Mix in whatever goodies you like, such as carob or chocolate chips, shredded coconut, lyceum berries, or slivered almonds.

4. Add enough carob powder to thicken into a dough. Roll into small balls. Store in the refrigerator, where they will keep for 2 to 3 months. But why let them sit so long?
