Nut and Seed Energy Bars

Nut and Seed Energy Bars

These bars are the perfect snack to have on hand when you're on the go. Packed with good wholesome ingredients, these bars provide excellent nutrition and taste delicious! They would also make a great snack option for kid's lunch boxes as they contain protein, healthy fats and no refined sugar so you can be sure you are providing them with an excellent source of energy to fuel their day. Using sacha inchi seeds and walnuts also means that you are increasing your omega-3 intake, which is greatly lacking in the typical western diet. These omega-3 fats are great for our overall health and wellbeing as they help keep our skin, hair and nails healthy as well as help regulate inflammation within the body.
