Maca Energy Bars Recipe

These low-sugar, nutrient-rich energy bars are the perfect natural way to boost your energy and give you the motivation to power through the rest of your day. They're even better than store-bought energy bars since they're vegan, gluten free and made with a deliciously healthy combo of powerful superfoods!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup almonds
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup flax meal (ground flax seeds)
½ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
2 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Chia Seeds
2 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Gelatinized Maca Powder
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup coconut oil
⅓ cup almond butter
½ tsp. sea salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS

In a medium bowl, combine sunflower seeds, flax meal, pepitas, chia seeds, maca powder, and salt.
Blend almonds in high-speed blender (or food processor) until they reach a coarse texture, then add them to the bowl.
In a saucepan over low heat, combine almond butter, coconut oil and maple syrup, and stir until well combined.
Add your wet ingredient mixture to the dry ingredient mixture and stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until well combined. Texture will be a bit sticky!
Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment and trim the edges to fit.
Spread mixture evenly into your pan and pack it down tightly.
Place pan in the fridge to set, at least 1 hour.
After the mixture has set, cut bars into desired shape and store in the fridge!
