Peanut Butter Oatmeal Squares

These tasty morsels are so simple to make and taste decadent yet still contain wholesome ingredients.

 

Nutritional Benefits:

Oats offer sustainable energy, vitamin E and are known to help lower bad LDL cholesterol.

Peanut butter is a valuable protein source and also contains heart healthy monounsaturated fats.

This recipe uses less sugars than many treats but still should be eaten in moderation.

These treats use dark chocolate which contains more of the beneficial cocoa solids. Cocoa solids are full of antioxidant flavonoids which help to ‘mop up’ free radicals in the body. Free radicals cause inflammation, ageing, chronic disease and some cancers.  Cocoa is also a source of phenylethylamine which stimulates the feel good endorphins and may even help to boost serotonin production (low serotonin levels are associated with depression and anxiety).

 

The recipes are free to everyone to use (please give credits to us if you choose to use them), and always will be, but our non-profit organisation incurs many costs to keep it running. If you would like to help keep it going, please consider giving a donation.
