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.

      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.

      Butternut Squash Soup

      Butternut Squash Soup

      Cloudy days call for soup and lots of it. Here at Philosophie HQ, we love creating soups with full, rich flavors that have grounding and soothing properties. Everything is created with careful love and intention. The best part? They’re so easy to reciprocate right in your own kitchen!

      This is a gorgeous creamy butternut squash soup with a delicious savory flavor. We've added Green Dream Superfood Blend (of course!) for extra superfoods and protein. Gently warm it up as the cold approaches. Don’t heat it too much or too long so the enzymes stay alive and well! 

      Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

      Do This:

      1 butternut squash (peeled, seeded, and cubed into 1-inch pieces)

      2 ½ cup vegetable broth

      3 garlic cloves (peeled)

      2 small shallots or 1/2 sweet onion (peeled + halved)

      1 tbsp olive oil

      1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood Blend

      1/2 tsp sea salt


      Gather This:

      Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prep veggies by tossing with olive oil and placing on roasting pan or rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast veggies for 45 minutes, stirring once or twice and cooking until squash is tender. Remove any shallot, onion, or garlic that seems to be over-roasting. Remove and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Place squash and shallots in blender/food processor and blend until creamy. In a large pot, place blended mix and add broth and salt. Cook on medium-low until heated through, adding more broth or water as needed. Taste for seasoning, stir in Green Dream and top with pumpkin seeds. ENJOY!

      Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

      Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

      Green veggie salads are NOTHING to be scared of. They can be just as delicious, nutritious and satisfying as any other salad. This baked brussels salad is perfect for those chilly afternoons and it is AMAZING! Make it with family, friends or as a wholesome lunch for just yourself. Add Green Dream to an anchovy oil dressing (TRUST US!), which melts anchovies in their oil then is added in with tahini, lemon and parsley, and creates one of the most savory, satisfying dressings you’ll ever have on a baked salad. 


      This roasted brussels salad will feel like a ceasar salad but with a bit fresher and brighter texture. A Green Dream dressing will add an extra dose of nutrients and plant protein. The ingredient list may look long but totally worth it for a salad this filling and flavorful.

      Brussel Sprout Salad

      Gather This:

      1 15 oz. can of chickpeas

      1 tbsp za’atar seasoning

      1 & ¼ lbs brussels sprouts (approx. 5 cups)

      FOR THE DRESSING

      1 tin anchovies (optional but so tasty!)

      2 cloves garlic minced or grated with a microplane

      1 tsp Green Dream

      ½ cup tahini

      1 lemon for juicing

      ½ cup flat leaf parsley finely chopped

      ¼ cup cold water


      Do This:

      Preheat your oven to 400°F.

      Drain and rinse chickpeas. Dry them well before adding them to a food processor. Pulse until they form chickpea "crumbs." Spread out evenly on a baking sheet.

      Generously drizzle the chickpea crumbs with olive oil, then toss in the za'atar and season with salt. Toss with your hands until everything is coated.

      Thinly slice brussel sprouts and add them to a separate baking sheet. You want them to have enough space on the pan to breathe and crisp up, so feel free to use two baking sheets if needed. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

      Add the chickpeas and the brussel sprouts to the oven, with the chickpeas on the highest rack. Bake the brussel sprouts for 20-22 minutes, and the chickpeas for 25-30 minutes or until dry and crisp.

      Green Superfood Dressing

      While the brussel sprouts and chickpeas are roasting, make the GREEN DREAM DRESSING.

      Put a small saucepan on medium low heat. Add in just the oil from the tin of anchovies, and let it heat up. Then add the anchovies to the pan, they should immediately sizzle and begin to "melt" into the oil.

      Add the grated garlic into the pan with the anchovy oil. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until you can no longer taste any raw garlic. This will look like a thick paste.

      Add this paste, the tahini, the juice from one lemon, the Green Dream and the parsley to a bowl. Combine everything to a blender for a light green sauce. 


      Remove the brussel sprouts and chickpea crumble from the oven. Drizzle a good amount of the dressing onto the brussel sprouts and give them a toss in the pan.

      To serve, pile the brussel sprouts into two bowls. Sprinkle the chickpea crumbles on top. ENJOY!

        Turmeric Collagen Latte

        Turmeric Collagen Latte
        Take your turmeric latte to the next level by infusing it with our Cacao Magic trio of products (superfood blend, coconut butter & honey) and a spoonful of our collagen superfood blend, Cosmic Elixir! By adding in collagen, you're ensuring that your body receives enough of this key building block that's responsible for healthy skin, hair, nails, bones, AND joints.
        .
        Our bodies can't make enough collagen on their own, so supporting it with adaptogens and collagen is a must. Collagen is taste free so I love adding it to a turmeric latte that's also got a touch of chocolate from our nutrient-rich, mood boosting Cacao Magic blend.
