From recipe by Kelly Wolf:
Oats, walnuts, dates and raisins are all the ingredients you need along with a food processor, an oven, and 15 minutes. Make a batch to have at the ready all week for any time, quality snacking. Let’s admire the 4 superstar ingredients real quick.
OATS - a beautifully versatile grain. A complex carbohydrate with an ideal ratio of carbs, protein, and fiber. It’s so versatile that it can be ground into a hearty flour. Move over-refined, bleached, nutrient-poor flours!
WALNUTS - the king of all nuts. This nut is perhaps the most nutritious nut, full of omega 3s, antioxidants, and healthy fats. Good for your body with key amino acids while keeping you satiated. Shaped like a brain, good for your brain too with its neuroprotective compounds.
RAISINS - an underrated superfood high in iron, and packed with lasting energy from the natural sugars. They’re full of vitamins and minerals and good for digestion.
DATES - nature’s most energy-dense food, providing delectable sweetness that’s packaged with fiber for a steady glycogen release. As a huge bonus, they are full of antioxidants, way higher than any other sweetener.
