“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!
