No Bake Pain Relieving Oatmeal Balls

In the quest to create high quality, uncooked snacks for pain relief I came across a recipe for no bake peanut butter balls. I tweaked this recipe, adding more oats, replacing the peanut butter with almond butter and adding loads of nutritious ingredients. The result were these three recipes, all three are high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids improve immune system function, decrease inflammation in your body, prevent nerve damage and lessen nerve pain. By making these in a “raw” form (not baking) you preserve more nutrients.

Chocolate Coconut Oatmeal Balls

Makes 12-15

  • 1- 1/2 cup oatmeal- steal cut or old fashioned
  • 1/2 cup flax seed
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl with a spatula, you may need to add a little more maple syrup. Once you can ball up the ingredients in your hand you have the right consistency.

Get your hands wet, then take ping-pong sized balls of the oatmeal mixture and roll in your hands. Place on a parchment lined plate and place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

TIP: keep your hands wet, this will stop the mixture from sticking to your hands.

nerve

I suffer from a nerve disease called CRPS also called RSD, it has been described by doctors to be “one of the most painful diseases you can have.” I’m constantly battling crippling pain in my arm, leg and ribcage, I have found that with my Nerve Pain Diet (which includes these 3 recipes) I can live a much more comfortable life. I’m not cured, but if I take it easy and listen to my body and eat these foods I don’t need to take much pain medication.

I hope these delicious snacks can help with you pain, please share your experiences, together we can find an all natural cure for nerve pain.

HAPPY COOKING!
