Raw Superfood Energy Bars

Raw Superfood energy bars

 

When you think of a superfood what do you think of?  For myself, I think of something a superhero would eat.  They would be able to  fly around the globe and have their pick of each countries superfood, giving them amazing power and strength!  Like super hero’s, in many cultures, warriors would eat Superfoods before going into battle giving them the endurance and strength they needed to fight.

What is a Superfood?  They are a nutrient dense powerhouse that provides your body vital nutrients to ensure it will run its best… Think high energy, combating disease and illnesses, fighting infection, prevention, etc.  What is so awesome about superfoods are the fact that each region has their own!  With modern technology and transportation, we now have access to some of the worlds most valuable nutrient powerhouses (Maca, Chia, Goji, Kale, walnuts and blueberries to name a few).

These bars are packed with raw super foods to maintain the highest amount of nutrients possible (cooking and baking causes many foods to lose nutrients).  They are grain free. Grains do offer some nutrition, but are far from a superfood, therefore I didn’t want to include any.  Get ready for some energy!

  1. I just made this. Waiting for the refrigeration time to be over!! I mixed it up a little. I used pecans instead of brazil nuts & peanut butter instead of almond butter. A bit excited to taste it!
