Another healthy recipe post this week on the blog and this time I’m sharing my delicious no-bake, prebiotic peanut butter ball recipe.
The no-bake, prebiotic peanut butter balls are packed full of nutrition including heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids(ALA) from flaxseed, hormone-balancing phyto-estrogens, a rich source of dietary fiber and prebiotics to support the gut flora and chock full of antioxidants such as flavanols from raw cacao nibs.
Oat bran is a great source of dietary fiber, both soluble and insoluble fiber. A diet rich in soluble fiber can help to reduce cholesterol levels and lower risk of developing diabetes.
Incorporating oat bran into healthy recipes like these peanut butter balls is also an easy and tasty way to get more digestive system supportive, indigestible prebiotic fibers into the diet.
The no-bake, prebiotic peanut butter balls are plant-based, dairy-free and contain no gluten or wheat.
Peanut butter can be substituted for almond butter or any other nut/seed butter.
The no-bake prebiotic peanut butter balls have an almost biscuit type consistency once they have hardened and they make for a very tasty, healthy snack.
1/2 Cup of Oat Bran
1/2 Cup of Milled Flaxseed
1/2 Cup of 100% Peanut Butter
Teaspoon of Organic Honey To Sweeten
A sprinkle of cacao nibs to garnish
Optional: Teaspoon of Organic Maca Root Powder for additional adrenal gland and hormonal support.
Simply mix the above ingredients in a bowl, until they are thoroughly mixed.
Shape mixture into balls and put in the freezer for 30-40 minutes to set.
Serve and enjoy with a cup of herbal tea.
