20 minutes

8 servings


A much healthier alternate to the high sugar energy bars currently on the market.
Goji berries are known to be a very dense nutritional food boasting loads of antioxidants and immune boosting properties. They are researched and have many uses, including free-radical fighters and as remedies for inflammatory diseases: cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease. High in protein, beta carotenoids, Vitamins A, B complex, C, E, iron, amino acids (protein building blocks), essential fatty acids, selenium, and many trace minerals. They are truly a "superfood".
Raw cacao nibs are hard to find, use the unsweetened cacao if you can't find raw.
