Diet Tags


Zinc, a superhero mineral, plays a vital role in our immune system, wound healing, and our sense of taste and smell.

But sometimes, maintaining healthy zinc levels can be tricky, especially for vegetarians and vegans.

Here’s where these incredible Oatmeal Bites come in!

Recipe Benefits

  • The star ingredient, oats, is a nutritional powerhouse. It’s a champion regarding zinc content in the plant-based world, providing enough zinc in a single serving that’s readily absorbed by your body. But that’s not all, oats also offer a wealth of other health benefits. They’re a great source of fiber, keeping you feeling full and energized. Plus, they’re packed with complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, supporting overall well-being.
  • Peanut butter is rich in protein and healthy fats. It also contains zinc, making it a valuable addition to a vegan diet. The healthy fats in peanut butter can maintain energy levels and support brain health.
  • Bananas provide natural sweetness and are rich in nutrients like potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. While not a significant source of zinc, bananas contribute to the overall nutritional profile of the bites and help bind the ingredients together.

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
