A key to being a part of Broncos Nation is keeping your energy up for the big game. I’ve got a healthy and energy filled recipe for you to share on gameday or keep for yourself during the week for an easy and nutritious snack! I’d like to introduce you to my favorite peanut butter balls.
These suckers are absolutely the best for a quick snack at any point in the day, and they are extremely easy to make.
Let me make your grocery list short and sweet: Creamy Peanut butter, (I like to use hald almond butter half peanut butter in the recipe), semi-sweet chocolate chips, old fashioned oats, ground flax seeds, and honey! Yes, that’s all you need to make these!
And if tasting great wasn’t enough, check out the health benefits:
Flaxseed: 1 tablespoon of flaxseed provides roughly 8 grams of fiber. Flax seed is also loaded with healthy fats, fiber and nutrients.
Peanut Butter: Filled with healthy fats and fiber. One serving of peanut butter contains seven grams of protein! This is perfect for energy and keeping you full throughout the day
Old Fashioned Oats: Rich in fiber, protein and nutrients. Old fashioned oats help to add extra nutrients to your diet and have been known to reduce cholesterol.
I stumbled upon this recipe a while ago on Pinterest but here is the original recipe if you’d like to check it out: http://chefsavvy.com/5-ingredient-peanut-butter-energy-bites/YouTube channel and make sure to follow me on Twitter and Instagram @chargersFGSN. Go Chargers!
