Witch Balls. Crystal Balls. These are some serious balls.
But I am not at all serious right now.
It is SO hard to write a title with the word balls in it without sounding like a giggling 12-year old.
Forgive me. I’ve had a hell of a week.
And I know many of you have too, because you’ve told me.
I do have a little secret to share with you. It’s an energy shot just when you need it.
Yes! Energy Balls. Bliss Balls. Whatever you want to call them.
They deliver a much needed boost to both mental and physical mojo during that late-afternoon crash when you’re dyyyying for something sweet. Instead of hitting the baked goods, arm yourself with these babies.
Mind you, my darlings, these are not your average ones. Oh, I’ve done the cranberry and raisin thing. And they’re fine. But let’s elevate these to a Goddess-level, shall we?
Time for some Kitchen Witchery.
Let's create our great balls of fire with smoldering, ancient spices. How about cardamom, whose Venusian crushed seeds exude the scent love and sex, and has long been used in magic to promote both. Mmm? Sound delicious already?
Then a little nutmeg, to amp up our psychic awareness, and a dash of cloves for prosperity...and what else...hmmm...
Let's add even more amour to the mix, with beautiful apples...considered naughty way before the bible, baby. Pagan Norse priests were said to have been forbidden to eat them, due to their lustful properties.
And figs! Figs. The most sensual fruit imaginable since the beginning of life on this planet.
Alright, let's do this.
Cardamom Fig Power Balls
- 1 C gluten free oats
- 1 Tbsp organic almond butter
- 4-5 organic Turkish figs, chopped
- 1/2 C dried organic apple, chopped
- 1 tsp cardamom
- Organic nutmeg, cloves, & cinnamon
- Pure water
Pulse oats, almond butter, figs, apples, & cardamom in a food processor or high-speed blender. Add a few generous pinches of both nutmeg and cloves, then add tiny amounts of water as you continue to blend until the mixture begins to look like a dough consistency, clumping toward the center. You want it to be sticky.
Now get in there with your hands and form little balls, all the while sending energy of love, sensuality, power, and awareness into them.
In a small bowl, pour a bit of cinnamon. Roll the balls in there to coat.
This makes 12 bite sized treats, but you can easily double and triple the recipe, as they keep in the refrigerator for about a week, and will freeze well.
Imagine Inanna in all her sexed-out Sumarian awesomeness nibbling on what we've just created? Place them in a gorgeous bowl or goblet, and offer them to her, and all the Goddesses who guide you every single day.
Now take your Goddess ass out into the world and show 'em who's Queen...
