Combine into a food processor:
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups whole dates
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1 cup almonds
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Add ground mixture to a bowl with 1 cup peanut butter. Combine. Roll into balls. Place on parchment paper and put into freezer or refrigerator for an hour or two. Place balls either in baggies, plastic wrap, or into containers. Store in fridge for ~ 1 week or freezer for a few months (if they will last).
These power balls are packed full of fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, protein, whole grains, healthy fats, and many vitamins! A great snack for on-the-go and/or post exercise!
The recipe above is just one of MANY different ways to create your own powerhouse snack balls! Use a variety of different nuts (walnuts, peanuts, pecans, cashews), seeds (chia, flax, sunflower), nut/seed butters (almond, cashews, sunflower), and fruits (raisins, berries). You can even add coconut flakes or chocolate chips!
Total time ~20 minutes from start to finish.
I will post new recipes as I create them, so be on the look out!!!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
