    I just returned from camping 2 days alone, conquering aa fear! My fav staple for camping, quick breakfasts on the go, are muffins, with the YL Einkorn flour, with some of YL’s choc. protein drink, & a banana. I added 6 drops of peppermint vitality, though I think 8 would be better next time. Sometimes I have 2 for breakfast, sometimes 1 with a hard-boiled egg. YUM!

  • Kathryn Patterson

    thanks for sharing your inspiring story! tackling fears, one step at a time.. like we eat, one bite at a time.

  • Cynthia Mcgarity

    Is there a way to find a nutrition list on these? Cal count, fat content etc?

  • Julie Cleaves

    If I wanted to substitute peppermint for tangerine in the chocolate balls, how many drops would you recommend?

    • Hey Julie! It is honestly subject to taste, but keep in mind that Peppermint Vitality will be stronger than Tangerine Vitality in its potency of flavor. I would put in 7-8 drops of the Peppermint initially and sample it and go on from three. Let us know how it turns out!

    Unsalted nuts with dehydrated cherries and blueberries. This post is inspiring me to add some vitality oils to the mix 🙂

    • Oh yes! How about Cinnamon Bark or Nutmeg Vitality…sounds so yummy!

  • Connie

    Can you provide the nutritional breakdown of the energy balls? Thank you

    • Hey Connie. We cannot, but if you look at the ingredients in the recipe, it will give you a good idea of the nutritional breakdown for the energy balls. Thanks!

      • Lynda

        Do you know how the sugar in 32 dates/apricots compares with using maple syrup or honey? Just wondered since it’s so many dates/apricots.

        • Hello Lynda! We do not have the sugar comparison between the fruit verses honey. We recommend trying it both ways to see which is your preferred taste. Thanks for stopping by!

    Are these fresh apricots or dried apricots?
