No Bake Oatmeal Balls for Pain Relief

Oatmeal Balls

These Pain Relieving No Bake Oatmeal Balls are a tweak to a recipe I came across for no bake peanut butter balls. In the quest to create high quality uncooked snacks for pain relief, I modified this recipe by adding more oats, replacing the peanut butter with almond butter, and adding loads of nutritious ingredients.

The result were these three recipes: Chocolate Coconut Pain Relieving Oatmeal Balls, Cherry Almond Pain Relieving Oatmeal Balls, and Cookie Dough Pain Relieving Oatmeal Balls.

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 pain relieving oatmeal balls in a “raw” form (not baking) you preserve more nutrients.

My Nerve Pain Disease

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 rib cage, 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.

Get your hands wet, then take ping-pong sized balls of the oatmeal mixture and roll in your hands.
