RAW SUPERFOOD ENERGY BITES

By , On , In Raw, Recipes, All Recipes

You are what you eat, so why pollute your body with artificial ingredients and nutrient-depleted foods?

Let’s face it, it could be challenging to find a healthy on the go snack that is made purely from natural ingredients and will nourish you (and your family). Most of the snacks available in the stores are filled with junk – full of sugar, artificial sweeteners and flavours, low in nutrients yet high in calories. We suggest that you stay away! 

Fortunately, it’s not all that difficult or time-consuming to create your own power snack that will support your healthy and active lifestyle. First order of business is to start with high-quality whole natural ingredients. These RAW SUPERFOOD ENERGY BITES are full of amazing stuff (hemp seeds, sesame, chia, goji, mulberries, and maca) to keep you energized and fueled during those busy on-the-go days. The best part is that making a healthy snack like this one is so easy – simply mix these plant-based “superfoods” in a bowl – shape – chill – and enjoy!

To preserve all the goodness in these bars and get the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals, we kept them raw.

Honestly, this is one of the simplest healthy treats you can make in less than 15 minutes.
