Berry Bliss SUPERFOOD Granola Bars

Delicious Superfood Granola Bar Recipe (never buy them again!)

 

Hello Philosophie community! This is Adrienne, Sophie's assistant - such a pleasure working with the Philosophie Team and working with an amazing company with a clear, uplifting purpose!!  I feel so blessed, full of gratitude, and so lucky to learn from them (not just about the company, but about life!).  I am so honored to be included in their circle, be in their presence, and trusted with everything.  Wow! I'm always inspired in so many ways, one of which is ...eating healthy, clean, and right ..(i try MOST of the time).  I've been a health-nut for a number of years, but Philosophie takes it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!! and now, i'm so excited to share my philosophie experiences with you! 


I tried these TRULY AMAZING homemade granola bars with our Philosophie Superfood Berry bliss added!!! and oh my gosh!!!  they were SOOO GOOD, i felt like i was eating candy! (but very healthy candy:)).  Such a treat - i could pretty much eat the whole bag...so i would recommend putting them in small ziplock bags so they are already portioned for the day. An easy-to-carry snack AND superfood boost all in one!


Berry bliss includes amazing, HIGHLY nutritious ingredients (camu-camu- the highest antioxidant fruit in the world, acai, goji, pomegranate, mangosteen and sprouted brown rice protein). A snack that will give you the long-lasting energy and vitality to continue through your day! You all are already beautiful, but maintain your beauty from the inside out with the right superfoods! And honestly, they tasted MUCH better than other granola bars in the stores and I know for sure I'm getting my nutrients with clean, simple ingredients.

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

      philosophie recipe for superfood granola bars
      1. Process dates in a food processor until small bits remain (about 1 minute). It should form a “dough” like consistency. (mine rolled into a ball)

      2. Optional step: Toast your oats in a 350 degree oven for 15-ish minutes or until slightly golden brown. Otherwise, leave them raw

      3. Place oats, almonds, walnuts, dates, cranberries, salt and Berry Bliss in a bowl – set aside.

      4. Warm maple syrup and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir and pour over oat mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates to disperse throughout.

      5. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to an 8×8 dish or other small pan lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper so they lift out easily. (A loaf pan might work, but will yield thicker bars.)

      6. Press down until uniformly flattened. Cover with parchment or plastic wrap, and let set in fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes to harden.

      7. Remove bars from pan and chop into 10 even bars. Store in an airtight container for up to a few days.

      Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

      Philosophie Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

      Let’s call it a steak night! Well, kind of. This scrumptious, roasted cauliflower dressed in a zesty Green Dream tomato sauce will totally hit the spot. 


      Cauliflower is an excellent blank canvas. You can steam or blanch it to keep its essential flavors intact, but by roasting or sautéing it, you can bring out its sweetness. Cauliflower will absorb the oil and seasoning, soaking up flavors much the way eggplant does. But it remains firmer. We’ve added Green Dream to a yummy marinara sauce for a little boost of plant-based protein, antioxidants, and of course, energizing superfood greens! 


      This is a super simple dish to prepare, and the sauce is a pure knockout. Trust me! This is the perfect family dish for all your backyard cookouts and gatherings.

      Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

      Gather This:

      1 head of cauliflower

      1 jar of favorite marinara 

      1 tbsp nutritional yeast

      1 tbsp harissa

      1 tsp Green Dream

      EVOO

      Salt + pepper to taste


      Do This:

      Slice the head of Cauliflower vertically, like you are slicing bread. Place on a baking sheet in a preheated oven, 400 degrees. Drizzle EVOO, salt and pepper and roast for 15 or so minutes, each side. While your cauli steaks cook, combine marinara, harissa, and Green Dream in a pot  on the stovetop and warm up. Place warmed sauce on a plate, add roasted cauli steaks, sprinkle Nutritional Yeast and more Green Dream or salt + pepper if you prefer!

      Summer Cacao Lemon Toast

      Summer Berry Lemon Toast

      What flavors remind you of summer? The refreshing flavor of lemon is one of our favorites and we’ve created the perfect little toast to celebrate summer!


      For this toast creation we’ve taken our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend which has tons of vitamin and antioxidant powers, our Berry Bee Honey for extra vitamin C and healing properties, and Coconut Magic Coconut Butter, making this a perfect mid-day boost.


      We love drizzling on our supercharged raw honey due to its antibiotic properties, energy-lifting powers, and plant-based protein from brown rice. This natural sweetener includes pomegranate, acai, goji, and camu-camu (ALL organic!), which are incredibly high in antioxidants. 


      We topped these little beauties with bee pollen and dried lemon slices which you can buy or make on your own by slicing and baking in the oven at its lowest temperature for 4-5 hours.

      Cacao Chocolate Chip Cookies

      We are OBSESSED with these cacao chocolate chip cookies by our girl, Kelly (@thekellycollopy) using our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend! Want to know the secret to these yummy recipes? Avocado!


      It may sound crazy but the combination of chocolate and avocado create a rich, smooth and decadent texture without any hint of avocado. Avocado offers healthy fats, fiber and makes any smoothie or treat you’re making - in this case, batter - super thick and creamy! 


      Using avocado in your baked good recipes is a perfect healthy substitute for butters or oils and the Cacao Magic gives these cookies a rich, chocolate flavor with extra nutrients!


      This recipe was created by Kelly and originally adapted from a recipe by Blair of @balancewithb.

      Gather This:

      1 ripe avocado

      ½ cup coconut sugar

      1 cage-free egg

      1 tbsp water

      Dash of vanilla extract

      ¼ tsp baking powder

      ¼ cup Cacao Magic

      ¼ cup cacao powder

      Large handful of chocolate chips

      Sprinkle of sea salt


      Do This:

      Mash avocado and mix well with coconut sugar, egg, water and vanilla until creamy and smooth. 

      Add in baking powder, Cacao Magic and cacao powder, scraping sides of bowl until well incorporated. 

      Fold in chocolate chips and scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. 

      Top with a few more chocolate chips for good measure & a touch of sea salt, then bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 12 minutes. These will be super fudgy, but firm up as they cool! Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

      Goji Berry Rose Refresher

      Hydration doesn’t have to be boring! Besides our daily dose of sunshine water with liquid chlorophyll there are so many fun ways to get creative with your water. Making a mocktail with a herbal infusion and superfoods adds nutrients to amp up your system and makes it tastier and more vibrant.


      A herbal infusion can look like flowers, herbs, spices and fruit to everyday beverages like water, sparkling water or kombucha. These herbal elements have a deliciously subtle taste, don't add extra sugar and add their own set of health benefits depending on the herbs you use. 


      Goji berries protect the eyes, support your immune system, and promote healthy skin. Rose provides a bit of magic and a boost of antioxidants, tannins, flavonoids, and essential A, C, D, E, and B3 vitamins. We’ve also added our Berry Bliss which is high in antioxidants, protein, vitamin A, and contains camu camu—one of the world's most abundant forms of vitamin C.


      Make sure to top it off with berries and ice for a beautiful spring refresher! 

      Gather This:

      1 cup hot water

      4 tbsp goji berries

      2 tbsp dried rose petals

      UPON SERVING -

      Mixed berries

      Kombucha or sparkling water

      Juice of half a lemon

      1 tsp Berry Bliss

      Optional: fresh mint, maple syrup or honey to sweeten


      Do This:

      Steep the goji berries and rose petals in hot water for at least 20 minutes (ideally overnight) or until the goji berries are soft and the water turns slightly pink and infused with the flavors of the goji berry and rose.

      Strain the goji berries and rose from the water and then add kombucha or sparkling water, Berry Bliss, lemon juice and mixed berries. You can add ice for an extra cool beverage.
