3-Ingredient Almond Butter Date Oat Balls

Almond Butter Date Oat Balls

Benefits

Did you know that oats are a good source of fiber and is low in saturated fat? Because it also contains protein, it acts as a natural source of glutamine, a nonessential amino acid that our body produces naturally.

As a side note, I made a video about glutamine, nutrition, and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, so for more information about glutamine and its effects on DMD as well as the recipe video, https://youtu.be/wkA5e2lE2x0!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 6 pitted dates

Directions

Place the dates in hot water for 5 minutes. In the meantime, pulse the oats in a food processor, and set aside in a bowl. Once the dates are done soaking, blend them. Add a splash of water if needed to help with mixing. Then, add the almond butter. Once it is evenly mix, add the oat flour in segments and process until ingredients are evenly mixed. Moisten hands with water and roll the dough into balls. Place in a plate or pan, and refrigerate for an hour.

(Side Note: This recipe made 25 almond butter date oat balls.)
