Peanut butter booster bars (performance snack)

This recipe is great for a pre training snack (consume approximately 1-1 ½ hours before training) (great for hit and endurance type sports, also a great pre gym cardio snack).

Peanuts are high in healthy fats, proteins and carbs and are an amazing source of healthy energy. Oats are a complex carbohydrate which will enact a slow sugar release and assist with adequate glycogen storage for game day. Fructose when consumed is primarily stored in the liver and will ensure the liver is enriched with glycogen for endurance. The dried fruit will provide an excellent source of glucose enriched with fibre and vitamins for quick energy.
