Oatmeal Energy Bites

Oats are a great fibre-rich grain that helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Combined with protein-rich nuts and seeds and you’ve got a great afternoon snack to curb sugar-cravings! These tiny energy bites don’t disappoint when it comes to flavour, and they are easily adjusted to incorporate the nuts/seeds of your choice. Keep the wet and dry ingredient amounts the same and the options are endless! Customize for your flavour/dietary needs. To make a nut-free version, substitute almond butter with sunflower seed or WOW butter for a school-friendly version.
