Superfood Bars for Holiday Travel

December 19, 2017

With the holiday weekend, many people will be traveling. Make these filling and nutritious superfood bars to take along on your travels. 

 

When I first started making these bars, I used peanut butter powder, as the original recipe suggested. However, I've since learned that I have a sensitivity to peanuts. Actually, a peanut sensitivity is very common. My sensitivity leads to to acne. I just recently learned that peanuts have been a major contributing factor to my skin issues. So, I've modified the recipe so that it is peanut-free. Enjoy! 

 

Superfood Bar Recipe 

(Modified from LIVfit Superfood)

 

Ingredients:

½ Cup Better Body Foods LIVfit Superfood Powder (available at Costco or online) or another protein powder

2 Cups Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, or a mix

1 Cup Honey (best if raw and local)

1 Cup Coconut Oil (organic, unrefined)

1 Tbsp. Vanilla

1 tsp. Salt

½ Cup Ground Flaxseed or Chia Seed Powder

4 Cups of Rolled Oats

¾ Cup Shredded Coconut

¼ Cup Cacao Chips

1 Cup Dried Fruit, Chopped

½ Cup Pumpkin Seeds or Sunflower Seeds

¼ Chia Seeds

 

Directions:

Chop or use a food processor to cut dried fruit, set aside. Melt coconut oil so that it is a liquid, measure one cup and pour into food processor. Add the whole nuts, honey, salt, and vanilla, blend until smooth. In a large bowl, combine the remainder of the dry ingredients and the dried fruit. Stir the honey/oil/nut mixture into the dry mix. You may need to use a fork to be sure everything is mixed well. Spread mixture into a 9” x 13” pan lined with waxed paper/parchment paper, place another sheet on top, press down with your hands to compress bars. Store at room temperature for up to 5 days or refrigerate. If the bars fall apart, store them in the refrigerator. Cut and enjoy!
