We are obsessed with all things lemon in our family, so when Young Living asked me to create a summer recipe using their vitality line of essential oils… I knew exactly what vitality oil I would be using!! Lemon of course!! I knew immediately I wanted to create Lushious Lemon Powerballs!!
Young Living’s line of vitality essential oils were created to be used in the kitchen. Amazing right? I’ve used cilantro in our salsa, basil in our marinara, ginger in our stir-fry and now lemon in our powerballs!!
Lemon Vitality Essential Oil
Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. Its versatility in sweet and savory recipes is what makes this fruit a popular item in kitchens around the world. Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory dishes like pasta and chicken or sweet foods like cookies, cakes and powerballs.
Lemon vitality comes in your starter kit and is one of my most used oils. I love to add a few drops to a cup of hot water in the am, in my dressings and marinades and to perk up my plain greek yogurt when I don’t have fresh lemons on hand.

HOW TO MAKE LUSHIOUS LEMON POWERBALLS
Are you ready to make Luscious Lemon Powerballs? You most likely already have all the ingredients on hand. Here’s a few tips to make the perfect powerballs I’ve learned over the years.
Step 1. Grind your oats
I like to use my blendtec bender for this. You want an almost flour consistency. If your oats are too course your ingredients won’t stick together making for a very crumbly “dough”. Its better to over blend than it is to under blend.
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. I like to use a kitchen aid mixer with a paddle attachment but you can easily make this recipe by hand with little extra elbow grease.
Melt coconut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. You want a natural peanut butter consistency. Melted but not runny I that makes sense? Add the remaining wet ingredients to coconut butter and stir.
Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix on low speed of your kitchen aid mixer with the the paddle attachment until a “dough forms.
Scoop the “dough” with a medium cookie scoop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Freeze for a minimum of 20 minutes to set the coconut butter. Powerballs will be hard. Enjoy!!
