Raw Brain Boosting Energy Bars
We all know how important it is to fuel our bodies with healthy foods, but sometimes that can be really challenging when there is limited time in the day to prepare meals/snacks; so, our favorite way to make sure we are getting in our superfoods and supplements is to make healthy treats at the beginning of the week that can be taken on the go so we always are prepared to stay on track with our goals.
This week, we have created these nutrient dense, no bake brain boosting energy bars that contain under 10 ingredients and are raw vegan, dairy free, gluten free, and soy free. We have added in our vanilla chai Golden Mind formula to this recipe, which contains a synergistic blend of lions mane powder extract, rhodiola rosea, L-Theanine, sea buckthorn oil, gotu kola extract, green tea extract, american ginseng and bacopa powder extract. These powerful ingredients help to reduce brain fog, support brain cell growth, increase focus, and protect the brain—making it the perfect addition to these bars!
We hope you and your family/friends enjoy this recipe as much as us! Let us know what you think about it on social media & tag us in your photos when you decide to make them :)
