“Being epic” in life is nearly impossible without a well-balanced diet. Why? Well, you need good, lasting energy to be able to do “whatever it is” that makes you epic.
These energy bar “bites” are practical, easy-to-make and to customize, loaded with vitamins & minerals and are just downright delicious. Today we’re going beyond simply adding whole food or superfood powders to our favorite beverage; we’re going to turn that powder into muscle-pumping energy bars filled with nuts, seeds, berries, quinoa and a little cacao!
- 5 Medjool dates
- 1 cup dried cherries (or cranberries)
- 2 packets ALOHA berry flavor whole food powder (or your favorite whole food or superfood powder)
- 1/3 cup raw quinoa
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1/2 cup raw pistachios
- 2 tbsp flax seeds
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- ~1 cup 60% cacao
- Optional toppings:
- I used raw crushed pistachios, raw crushed pecans, colorful raisins and raw sunflower seeds.
Approximate macros for 1 of 18 bites (or balls) without optional toppings:
