The Peanuts used in these Peanut Butter Coconut Balls (Gluten-Free) are rich in healthy monounsaturated fats, which help promote healthy cholesterol levels and good cardiovascular health. This legume also delivers vitamin E, folate, niacin, manganese and the potent antioxidant. Eating a few Brazil nuts daily will supply you with a good dose of the antioxidant mineral selenium, which is needed for good tissue elasticity. It also acts to reduce cell damage from free radicals, and may play an important role in reducing the risk of skin cancer. These nutritious gluten-free balls make a perfect afternoon snack with a cup of Bodhi Organic Tea.
