If you haven’t yet tried a superfood powder, now’s the time! These almond superfood bites are jam-packed full of incredible nutrition. Almonds, oats, chia seeds, cinnamon…all nutritious ingredients on their own are amplified, thanks to the addition of Boku Superfood.
Almond Boku Superfood Bites
The base of this recipe is almond butter. Homemade almond butter. Toss almonds in a food processor and they’ll turn into a meal. Keep going and they will start to form butter (see pic 3). Image 4 is what the almond butter will look like after the organic vanilla and raw honey are added. E a s y.
Be sure to pulse the oats a bit to look like the above photo. It will assist in mixing to create a cohesive, non-crumbly ball. And speaking of balls, a cookie portion scoop is a great tool to have. You can’t go wrong with one like OXO Good Grips Medium Cookie Scoop.
What is Boku Superfood?
Boku superfood,in a nutshell, is a powder made from incredibly nutritious foods. I actually get giddy when talking about how nutrition influences lives. I get even more excited when I eat foods that are ridiculously high in nutrition. And I’m not talking synthesized vitamins and minerals. I’m talking real antioxidants, real cancer-fighters, real deep colors, real components from real food that have real health benefits.
Boku Super Food has NO added vitamins or minerals, which I love. It’s nutrient dense, real food, dehydrated and ground into a powder.
Snapshot of what Boku super food blend is made of:
- Organic barley grass. Why? It has more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach and the same amount of protein as red meat.
- Organic nettle leaf, spirulina, chlorella and kelp. All are rich in chlorophyll which are proven protective elements in cancer prevention. (1)
- Organic nopal cactus. It provides a high dose of fiber and demonstrates blood sugar lowering properties.
- Non-dairy probiotics, digestive enzymes and Himalayan pink salt.
- And if the above didn’t get you excited, how about broccoli, organic spinach, organic kale, organic cabbage, organic parsley, organic mushrooms, organic maca root juice, organic sprouts, organic sweet mesquite, organic vanilla beans, organic lucuma fruit, organic goji berry, organic hawthron berry, organic pomegranate, organic blueberry, organic tart cherry, organic cranberry, organic raspberry and organic Vermont maple syrup.
So yes, it’s safe for adults, children, and pregnant and lactating women.
The beautiful thing about these almond superfood energy bites is that they taste just as good as they are for you. If you don’t believe me, ask my little girl, they’re her favorite snack.
