Spirulina energy bites are made with trace amounts of naturally occurring healthy fats and proteins to power you through that afternoon slump or help you refuel post workout.
Although chlorophyll has been getting all of the buzz lately, it’s time to announce the real superfood hero: spirulina. This blue-green algae is loaded with nutrients, and actually contains chlorophyll as one of its main contributors to the deep green color of spirulina.
Before we get into the recipe, let’s get to know spirulina a bit more. These tiny energy bites are packed with nutrients including antioxidants, beta-carotene, iron, and many more. Our Spirulina is grown in remote southern California farms with a closed-loop water system to ensure the cleanest and highest quality spirulina for you.
If you still can’t get past the potent color and scent of this superfood powder, let’s roll through some of the benefits spirulina has to offer. Below are a few things that make this algae oh so special.
Spirulina participates in the body’s antioxidant process to help keep you feeling like the powerhouse you are.
Spirulina is loaded with different nutrients that your body needs.
Due to soil depletion across the world, it’s hard to get all the minerals your body needs in your diet through food alone, so getting your daily spirulina is an awesome way to sneak in a few more nutrients.
Spirulina energy bites are made with trace amounts of naturally occurring healthy fats and proteins to power you through that afternoon slump or help you refuel post workout. The base includes oatmeal for a good source of fiber and almond butter for healthy fats.
From start to finish, this recipe takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare. A blender or food processor works great to mix all the ingredients together, but a large spoon and bowl also does the job if you don’t mind whole oatmeal in your bites! After you’ve blended, mixed, and rolled these yummy snacks, you can keep them in the refrigerator for whenever you need a little pick-me-up in your day.
