Flaxseed, Oats and Peanut Butter Laddoos

Flaxseed laddoos

Looking for some healthy, quick and easy snack option for kids? I make these flaxseed and oats laddoos that are perfect for a healthy snack or to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings!! These energy balls are packed with proteins, omega 3 and fiber.

Flaxseed and Oats are very popular these days and are consumed in a variety of ways. Flaxseed is a source of healthy fat, antioxidants, and fiber. Research has found evidence to suggest that flaxseed can also help lower the risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease. Oats are loaded in dietary fiber and have a range of healthy cholesterol-lowering properties.

These laddoos are more beneficial in winter months but can be consumed during summer in moderation.

I can assure you will be hooked onto these power balls and make them as a part of your everyday snack!!

Warning: Double the recipe and make a big batch, as they will be gone very quickly:)
