When I lived on Vancouver Island – I would visit this health food store that sold these amazing Spirulina Bars – don’t know the recipe and tried to copy it (kind of hard when you don’t know the recipe at all) but this is what I came up with and different but I think still tasty.

it may seem like I am on a bit of a Spirulina kick but what I am trying to share is how easy it is to get superfoods or nutrient dense foods into your way of eating and it doesn’t have to be hard, expensive, boring or confusing – it really can be easy, tasty and your body will love you for it!!

I am all about healthy eating made easy!!

Spirulina is a natural “algae”  powder that is incredible high in protein and nutrients and easily digested by our intestinal bacteria that in turn then feed our blood and cells.  It is an excellent source of B vitamins, is a complete protein, 18 amino acids, has PEA (Phenylethylaimine) – dubbed the love chemical so it helps us to ‘feel good’, high in bioavailable iron, is loaded with lots of enzymes – which helps with digestion, antioxidants, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acids, and is extremely high in Chlorophyll, which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.

Spirulina is one of the most nutritious food sources in the world – I choose Purium Spirulina because it’s organic, non-gmo and live – always make sure of these qualities.

What if consuming a tablespoon or two per day of a simple food like Spirulina could drastically lower your chances of developing cancer, heart disease, or stroke, or just feeling better overall?  Wouldn’t that be cool?

Recipe

–  2 cups Crispy Rice cereal

–  1 cup Pumpkin seeds

– 3 tbsp Chia seeds

– 3 tbsp Hemp seeds

–  1 cup Sunflower seeds

Mix together in a big bowl

In a pan on very low heat – just enough to warm things, mix together

– 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (Purium’s Coconut oil)

–  1 cup Almond butter

–  1/2 – 3/4 cup Agave, Honey or Brown Rice Syrup (depending on the sweetness – I used Brown Rice and it needed a little more)

–  1/4 cup Tahinni

–  1 tbsp Vanilla

– 2 tsp Spirulina (Purium’s Spirulina)

Mix all ingredients together and when smooth  mix into the other bowl and mix well.

Press into 8 x 12 square dish.

I found it best to keep in fridge – cut into squares, eat, share and enjoy!!

Great snacks, on the good food source and will keep you satisfied for quite awhile – including your sweet tooth!!

    I think I have bookmarked over 100 recipes of healthy bars but never made one because some of them seem a bit time consuming. Your recipe sounds very healthy and uses ingredients that I already have handy. Do you know how they last in a lunch box; if I take them at work in the morning they’ll be edible by lunch or they have to stay in the fridge the whole time?
