Contrary to what their name implies, peanuts are not true nuts but a member of a family of legumes related to peas, lentils, chickpeas and other beans. Peanuts are a very good source of monounsaturated fats, the type of fat that is emphasized in the heart-healthy diet. Studies of diets with a special emphasis on peanuts have shown that this little legume is a big ally for a healthy heart. Peanuts contain oleic acid, the healthful fat found in olive oil and are rich in antioxidants. Roasted peanuts do rival the antioxidant content of blackberries and strawberries, and are far richer in antioxidants than apples, carrots or beets. Oats are an excellent source of iron, dietary fiber and thiamin. It is summer break for the schools now. Kids when at home, like to snack more than eat proper meals. I know every Mom has to scratch her brain to come up with healthy snack ideas and i came up with this one. It was little sweet for me, but was great hit amongst the kids.
