Now here is a snack you can keep snacking on guilt-free. Packed with one of my favorite legumes -LENTILS - with just the right amount of sweet. This snack is simply fiber filled, plant protein packed goodness :)!
1/2 cup brown lentils ( I made a bunch in the Instant Pot ahead of time to use during the week and I recommend you do the same. For 2 cups of lentils, I added 4 cups of water and used High Pressure Cook for 9 minutes on the instant pot and let it release naturally when done)
1/2 cup dairy - free chocolate chips
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup sunflower seed kernels
1/4 cup hempseeds
1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter . I used peanut butter ( or sunflower butter If you have a nut allergy)
1/2 cup agave
Prepare lentils set aside until after they have cooled.
Add the chocolate chips, oats, sunflower seed kernels, and hempseeds. Mixed in the lentils. Add your nut butter or nutless butter of choice. Add agave. Mix well and form into balls.
Place in an airtight container and refrigerate.
Can be stored in the fridge for 5 days or frozen for up to 6 months.
