With only 7 ingredients, this recipe is super quick and easy to make! I developed this recipe for Ra Energy. Their products are a blend of organic seeds (hemp, sesame, buckwheat, chia and flax) that can be used in a variety of ways to boost the nutrient density of your diet. Check out their website for locations nearest you that carry their products.
Naturally sweetened with dates, and chock full of seeds and oats, these little gems are perfect for a grab and go snack to keep you energized throughout the day. They also hit the spot as a tasty dessert or picnic treat!
Tip: I find that having snack recipes and ideas on hand always makes for more calm in my life, so I’ve created a list of quick and easy meal prep snacks for you here!Print
