Energy Bites Taken to the Next Level
Struggling with those energy lulls in the middle of the afternoon? What about your kiddos, do they always seem hungry and want to eat you out of house and home? I hear ya! I am always on a hunt to find the next great thing that my kids will love and actually eat.
When I found this recipe I was completely over the moon! Why? because my kids LOVE banana bread. The clean healthy way that I make it. However, for a snack, we wanted something a little more nutrient dense, and something that is going to be sustainable in the energy department. Plus sometimes you don’t need to eat a full piece of bread. Just a small bite would do.
What are the benefits?
Well, these energy bites are packed full amazing nutrients but they are also Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Low Sugar, Raw, Vegan, Vegetarian, and full of Whole Grains. This is going to provide clean-burning energy, without the crash.
- Balance blood sugars
- contain prebiotic fibers
- Help control appetite
Let’s Look at those ingredients
Oats are a good source of Chromium, which helps stabilize your blood sugar levels. It is also packed full of manganese, fiber, protein, and b-vitamins (help balance our moods). They are also linked with increased feelings of fullness and satisfaction with food. They are a big supporter when it comes to digestive health.
They are full of fiber and protein. They are loaded with potassium (which is great for relieving leg cramps in kiddos). Hemp has a unique fatty acid profile that includes common omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, plus less common stearidonic (SDA) and gamma-linolenic (GLA) acids. These fatty acids fight inflammation and protect your heart and immune system.
Peanut Butter (raw)
Peanuts are high in copper and manganese. They are also a good source of Vitamin-E which is a building block to your immune system. As well as a good source of your B-Vitamins. Peanuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the type of fat that is emphasized in the heart-healthy. They are also rich in antioxidants. Some studies even show that it can lower your risk of weight gain.
Has been used for many years in the medical field, for its antimicrobial and wound healing properties. Raw Honey is also known for helping with pollen allergies, it is a good clean source of energy. As well, it is a powerhouse when it comes to antioxidants. Studies have shown as well that it can help regulate blood sugar levels as well. Again back to the hangry and the mood balancing bonus.
