Around the holidays, it's always fun to mix-in new recipes instead of the same old stuff. This year I started to add essential oils into my diet... Baking & cooking with essential oils? Yep, you heard it: a world where each drop is filled with delicious, vibrant taste. An art I've only just begun to dabble in, we're excited to share with you a few "naughty" recipes to treat your guests for the holidays. Enjoy! I'm always looking for new and exciting EO recipes - please share your favorite EO recipe in the comments.
1. Peppermint Truffle
** Enjoy your YUMMY Chocolate “infused with essential oil goodness” truffles! **
2. Cinnamon & Nutmeg Apple Crisp
Peal & cut apples, place in mixing bowl. Butter the pie dish; then soften/melt 1/2 stick of butter in a little bowl.
*Add EO's to melted butter & pour over the top of sliced apples. (Or use melted coconut oil to make this recipe dairy free.)
Add ground cinnamon, 1/4 cup organic white sugar, 1/2 cup Brown sugar.
Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Then pour all contents into your glass baking dish. Cover with foil, bake at 425 for 45-50 min. Let cool, and serve with Vanilla ice cream.
3. Fudgy “Thin” Mint Brownies
NOTE: You can NOT cook with any essential oil! Most essential oils are not therapeutic grade, thus are not for internal use. They are cosmetic/fragrant oils. Please do not cook with your essential oil unless you're using Young Living or food grade safe EO's!
*We do not advocate the use of any other brand of essential oils in food preparation as they are generally aromatherapy grade and are typically labeled with precautions against using them in any other fashion.
Hey, what's your favorite essential oil recipe? Please share in the comments... I'm always looking for fun ways to use my oils. Happy Holidays!
