Cranberry Almond Power Balls are the perfect grab and go snack. Oats, raw almonds, dried tart cranberries, medjool dates and maple syrup. Packed with healthy fats, carbs, protein and fiber.
Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:
Old Fashioned Oats: High in fiber and antioxidants, oats are a great source of carbohydrates.
Dried Cranberries: High in antioxidants, several vitamins and minerals as well as fiber.
Raw Almonds: A great source of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, fiber and some protein.
Maple Syrup: Make sure you buy the real stuff! I love the Organic Maple Syrup from Trader Joe’s. It can be found with the other baking ingredients.
Medjool Dates: A great source of fiber, vitamin B6, magnesium and potassium.
Ground Flaxseed: High in fiber, lignans and omega-3 fats, flaxseed has powerful antioxidant properties which may help prevent cancer.
