Superfood Protein Bars

This recipe is for the most delicious and nutrient-dense protein bars you could ever make.

I've been getting kind of grossed out lately when I eat store bought protein/energy bars. The fact that most of those bars (even the most healthy ones) can sit on a shelf for over a year and not sprout an inch of mold concerns me. That I could save one of the boxes until I'm a grandma and feed it to my grandkids is just not cool. Don't get me wrong, they are GREAT to have on hand in emergencies and I definitely store them in my diaper bag and car, I would just PREFER to feed myself and my family something more fresh and handpick the ingredients myself.

These bars aren't very sweet, in fact, the only thing they are getting any sweetness from is the stevia in the whey protein I use. If you want them a tad sweeter, I would add a local, organic, raw honey from the farmers market. Honey would taste amazing in these!

Gather:

Combine: (in food processor)

  1. Take the oats, sunflower seeds, goji berries and pumpkin seeds and grind in the food processor until they form a powder/flour.
  2. add the green dream, berry bliss and vanilla whey protein powder. pulse a few times.
  3. add the cashew butter, coconut oil and optional honey and mix until combined.
  4. test the consistency. If it's too dry to from into a ball then add 1/2 T cashew butter and 1/2 T coconut oil and mix again. if it's too moist add 1/2 T whey protein powder. When desired consistency is reached, press the mixture into the pan and flatten. Put the dish, uncovered, into the fridge for 30-60 minutes. Remove from fridge, cut into bars. Cover individual bars in foil/wrap or put a couple into plastic baggies. I've been doubling this recipe and making on Sunday's to have for the week for the family. It's the perfect snack on the go! We've been eating it for breakfast with fresh fruit :)

Note: keep the bars in the fridge. Don't remove until just before you're going to eat them. They get really crumbly and melt when they aren't refrigerated!

These look great – unfortunately, I need them to last a bit longer outside of the fridge for me to consider making them :(
I usually need a snack after kickboxing but, by this time, I have been out of the house for 12 hours (or more!) – any tips on how to make them not melt and make them ‘gym bag friendly’?

Hi Sophie— I just made these using Cocao Magic instead of Berry Bliss and they are delicious!!! I posted a pic on Instagram. Obviously they are a bit darker because I used the chocolate super food, but they taste wonderful. I am wondering if you have any idea of the macros on these bars? I know it would be tough to determine fat and calories since we will all cut them into different sizes, but I am wondering about the carb count, proteins and sugars. I am trying to track my diet on MyFitnessPal and wanted to be able to add these bars!!

Ill calculate them ASAP and add them! Green dream smoothie is on there and so is cacao magic and cacao magic truffles!

Cacao Magic Beet Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Hey loves! My stunning Philosophie Babe, Marissa Cohen, shared her smoothie recipe with me and I could not possibly be more in love with it. As an expecting mama, the metabolism and energy kick I get from this recipe are an absolute must. What’s good for me is good for baby girl! Here’s why Marissa swears by this recipe, a delicious and nourishing blend of Cacao Magic Superfood and beets.

I love this smoothie for several reasons. First of all, it looks like a shade of lipstick I used to steal from my mother and wear like a #princess. More importantly, it tastes amazing! I love incorporating grounding, hearty root vegetables into my main meals, so I figured I could give them a chance in my smoothies. It was a success! In this recipe, I used beets, which are full of fiber and nutrients. Beets cleanse the liver too, making them a great veggie to include in your breakfast. They also pair perfectly with Cacao Magic Superfood to create a rich, deep flavor. This smoothie is thick and satisfying, and it gets your metabolism and brain going first thing in the morning. I hope you love this smoothie bowl as much as I do!

 

Gather This:

1 large or two small beets (you can steam raw beets and then freeze them, or buy beets without any vinegar on them)

1/4 avocado

1/2 frozen banana

1-2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Coconut Butter

2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon Cacao Bee Honey + extra for drizzling

 

Do This:

Throw the beets, avocado, banana, Cacao Magic Superfood, and cinnamon into a high-power blender and blend until smooth. Top with banana, granola (optional) and a drizzle of Cacao Bee Honey and enjoy!

Avocado Curry Toast Recipe

Yummy, nutritious food will make you feel so good and full of that holiday cheer. I’ve been feeling inspired by Kara Elise’s TOAST cookbook. It has so many beautiful, simple toast recipes which are the BEST thing for a busy mama.

I added a Philosophie touch to this variation of an avocado toast. I explored flavor combinations and experimented with playing in the kitchen. I’ve had a interest in curry and came across Jem Organics’ Cashew Curry Tahini and fell in love. It’s made up of five organic ingredients (cashews, sesame seeds, coconut sugar, curry powder, salt) and works as a spread or drizzle. This nutty, bold taste mixed with the subtle, powerful kick of Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend is magical.

This is such an energizing and satisfying snack or breakfast meal on the go. It’s full of healthy fats and superfoods; ready to keep you moving from yoga class to holiday shopping.

Gather This:

Kite Hill Chive Cream Cheese

1 avocado, sliced

¼ pea sprouts

Drizzle of Jem Organics’ Cashew Curry Tahini

A sprinkling of Everything but the Bagel Seasoning (Trader Joe’s)

½ tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

 

Do This:

Toast bread, spread on the cream cheese, top with avocado slices and a sprinkling of pea sprouts. Finish with a drizzle of curry tahini, seasoning, and Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend. Enjoy!
