Protein-rich snacks balance blood sugar and impact our mood, weight and energy. Protein is found in the peanut butter, hemp seeds and chia seeds in this recipe. Hemp is a complete protein, meaning it contains all the amino acids that help build our body’s cells.
Chia seeds are also a good source of heart healthy omega 3 oils.
