Chia Seed Energy Bars

Chia seeds: 1 tablespoon has more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries and is an amazing source of fiber.

What you will need:

  • 6 large dates
  • 1/2 cup Chia Seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 scoops of protein powder 60g

Optional extras:

- Pinch of cinnamon powder

  • Dark chocolate broken into small pieces 
  • Shredded coconut 
  • Dried fruit

How to bring it all together:

  1. Remove pits from your dates and pulse dates in a food processor or blender until they form a paste
  2. In a medium bowl mix the chia seeds, protein powder and coconut oil in with the dates and it will form a thick dough
  3. Add in any of the optional extra if you like now
  4. Spread the mixer into balls or press into the bottom of a glass baking dish and cut into squares 
  5. It can be eaten immediately as is or you can put it in the fridge or freezer to make it more chewy texture. These can be wrapped in wax paper or parchment paper
