These nutty morsels not only fill you up with healthy super-powered nutrients, but they also are low glycemic and high in fiber, and give you oodles of fat-burning energy. Try these before a workout or as a sweet satisfying dessert, or even a high-powered breakfast to go! Every ingredient in these is a virtual superfood bursting with healthy, energizing, fat burning potential.

The fats are good for your heart, blood vessels, skin, eyes and more. The arginine in the nuts helps to relax blood vessels, lowering blood pressure and increasing stamina. And chia seeds are loaded with omega 3 fats, and tons of antioxidants! They provide complete protein, along with a bushel of nutrition!

Ingredients

1 cup raw or roasted almond, cashew, sunflower or peanut butter
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1/4 cup chia seeds
3/4 cup oats
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
2 Tbsp honey
pinch of sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp of organic cocoa powder
2 scoops cold processed whey protein powder

Directions

Mix all ingredients in bowl or food processor. Roll into balls or press into a square pan. Refrigerate for an hour or more. Store in refrigerator or freezer.

About Catherine Ebeling: I am Catherine (Cat) Ebeling. I am an RN with a Masters of Science in Nursing and Public Health. I have been studying diet, fitness and health for the past 30+ years–in addition to my clinical nursing experience, which includes anti-aging, preventative, regenerative medicine and bioidentical hormone therapy. I have had a life-long fascination with diet, fitness and nutrition, and have learned how to biohack my genetic capacity. I realized that we, as humans, have the ultimate power over our bodies and our health. Wanting to learn even more about human biology, nutrition, health and disease, I went back to school to study for a BSN in nursing. I just recently completed my MSN (at age 60). I’ve written six books on diet and health that have sold thousands–and even hundreds of thousands of copies all over the world through “The Nutrition Watchdog” publishing. I am an expert on diet and health and want to share that knowledge with you. I can be reached at caebeling@gmail.com or 314-369-6400 or on FB Instant Messenger.
