February Is Heart Month

February is heart month! Did you know that nine out of ten people have at least one risk factor for heart disease and stroke? Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death in Canada. And a lot of the risks can be eliminated by healthy lifestyle habits. One those important habits is diet.

In partnership with Rogers Grains, I am celebrating heart month by dishing up some delicious snacks that are also heart healthy. Learn more about the awesomeness of oats by visiting Roger's website: Rogers Foods

Oats Are Heart Healthy

Oats are a heart healthy food. They contain a lot of both soluble and insoluble fibre, which help to eliminate cholesterol, and control blood sugar. Did you ever notice that when you eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, you aren't hungry until lunchtime? That's because the fibre that those oats contain, makes you feel fuller for longer. As my grandmother used to say: oatmeal in the morning, is  “a stick to your ribs” breakfast.

Show Your Love

So what better way to celebrate Heart Month, than with these healthy, heart shaped Oatmeal Energy Bites? Show your loved ones that you care about their hearts by mixing up a batch of these oatmeal energy bites. And if you prefer, you can skip the heart shapes and just roll them into balls. They'll taste just as good.

I used pomegranate arils in this recipe, but dried cranberries are also perfect here, so don't hesitate to sub them. And if you want some extra sweetness, you could also add some mini dark chocolate chips, too. These oatmeal energy bars are pretty versatile.

Try using oats in more delicious ways, too, like Rhubarb Blueberry Oatmeal BarsWhole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, or Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal.
