This is my super yummy answer to some popular seed and nut bars. Sweet and nutty and lots of flavor! Great as a quick breakfast, an afternoon snack, a post workout kick, and pretty much anytime you need a little something! I added raw Maca powder because of its stress reducing, stamina and (libido) busting, and fatigue fighting powers. Chia seed is great for its ability to energize, not to mention its rich in omega fatty acids AND a great source of fiber in general.
Remember Crispy Chocolate Bars? Or Mr. Krispers? Something like that. Well this recipe I came up with reminds me of that. Simple, quick, and gives you Omega-3s, MCTs, and antioxidants. My version is low-sugar as well, but I'm sure you could use agave, date syrup, or some other raw sweetener if you prefer.
