Peanut Butter Maca Oat Balls
Crunchy, gooey peanut butter blended with dates, almonds and high fiber oats, make these oat balls a perfect after workout snack. They are even great to take on a long bike ride or any other endurance workout you may be doing, to keep your energy up. The maca will give you a boost of energy that is sustainable.
Your kids will love them too for an awesome afternoon snack. Get your hands in the mixture, and infuse a lot of good ole’ lovin in there.
