Superfood Bites Two Ways

No matter where you are on this journey, I think we all want on some level to be healthier. Peoples health is suffering more and more, and we need to stop and consider what we are putting in our bodies. Some of us walk around with headaches, stomach aches, inflamed joints, or even worse, and our first response is to turn to a pill, when food or deficiencies could be the root of the problem.

Check out this quote I saw the other day, “95% of chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies, and lack of physical exercise.” Mike Adams, The Health Ranger. Thats crazy isn’t it? 95% is no joke…..yet some of us will feel the urge to start change, and others won’t. Food has a hold on us we don’t like to admit.

Changing the routine of what we are having for breakfast or our afternoon snack can have a big impact in our bodies.

Swapping out a sugary bowl of cereal, or even a seemingly healthy flavored oatmeal with these superfood bites can be the difference of starting your day with processed, artificial ingredients, and refined sugar compared to foods that benefit your body. You may want to exchange them for the 100 calorie pack that you grab from your purse in the afternoon thats full of the same junk,  or your evening Debbie Cake or bowl of ice cream.

Superfood Bites Two Ways

*See tips at the bottom

Pecan Coconut (1st way)

  • 1/3 cup pecans or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (refined)
  • 4 medjool dates (pits removed)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

Peanut Butter oat (2nd way)

  • 1/2 cup oats + 3 tbsp
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp unsweet peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (refined)
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp whole flax seed
  • 2 tsp wheatgrass powderBuy the wheatgrass we use here (optional)

Chocolate topping

  •  1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil (refined) (very soft or melted)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp raw cacao powderBuy raw (not cocoa powder)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of pink salt or sea salt

Directions

  • In your Nutri-BulletBuy the one we have here or food processor place all ingredients from which ever you choose to make. (It blends better to place dry ingredients first, then wet when using a Nutri-Bullet)
  • Blend until the mix comes together.
  • With a spoon press into your molds.Buy the molds I use here
  • Mix up all ingredients of the topping and spoon on top.
  • Top with extra coconut, peanuts, or other chopped nuts if you would like.
  • Refrigerate for at least a half hour before serving.

*Tips

  • The molds are great, but if you don’t want to purchase you can press in the bottom of a pan and cut into squares after it hardens.
  • I like to use refined coconut oil, but you can absolutely use unrefined, they will just taste more like coconut.
  • Sometimes I like to add wheatgrass to the peanut butter oat. Wheatgrass has amazing benefits and we ALL should incorporate a cereal grass in our diet.
  • I have these measured out to make 12 squares of each kind in the molds in the picture. To make a full tray of one kind, just double the recipe.
