An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Super Power Bars

PowerBar ingredientsOkay boys and girls, how’s your healthy new year coming along!?!  Have you added or increased your exercise routine? Are you putting healthy, chemical free foods in your body? I hope so!

 If you, like me, need something quick and convenient to grab on the go but are tired of paying for ‘bars’ that are loaded with sugar– If you are looking for something healthy, protein rich, and low-sugar that could be breakfast, a snack, or the perfect nibble during endurance exercising, well look no further!

In a food processor combine:

1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates (~8 dates, make sure you remove the pits and chop dates up, your mixer will thank you)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp flax seeds
1 Tbsp coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice honey, maple syrup, stevia)
2 Tbsp almond butter

Scoop out of mixer and spread into a small (preferably glass) container.

Cut into small blocks or bars.

I leave my Super Power Bars in the container in the fridge, but you could wrap them individually in wax paper ahead of time so they are easier to grab and go.
