Here’s to another delicious and nutrient-packed snack that you’ll all love! Presenting the superfood energy bar recipe!

 

Today, we’re going beyond merely adding whole food or superfood powders to our favorite beverages. We’re going to turn that powder into muscle-pumping raw energy bars filled with nuts, seeds, berries, quinoa and a little cacao!

 

These energy bars are a high energy booster before any workout activities or even if you are feeling burnout. This meal is so easy to make and is infinitely customizable, too.

 

The first thing to do is put the nuts, cocoa powder, dried cherries, and any other ingredients in the food processor. It will have a uniform appearance and texture later on. 

 

In a bowl, transfer and mix it with other ingredients such as roughly cut nuts and seeds — chia seeds, flax seeds, or sunflower seeds. Afterwards, lay it flat and evenly on paper sheets and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours then cut it into bite-size pieces.

 

Having an active lifestyle is somehow impossible without a well-balanced diet. Why? Because you need a good and lasting source of raw energy to be able to do things that make your life epic. These bar bites are rich in vitamins and minerals that will surely sustain that energy. It is also a downright delicious snack that you can share with your family and friends.

 

Let me know by sending me an email or leave a comment below on how this recipe turned out for you, and also how it helped to sustain the daily amount of energy that you need for your life activities.

 

It inspires and motivates me to work a lot harder in my kitchen, and this journey with you in achieving your weight loss and fitness goals is so important to me. I would be glad to know your thoughts, tweaks, and experiences.

 

Have a tremendously energetic day, fit foodies!
