MitoXcell Superfood Energy Bars
MitoXcell Superfood Energy Bars are chock full of super foods that provide your body and mind with long-lasting energy. They are nutritiously designed to get you through a busy (or leisurely) day. What's in them? Chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, cacao nibs, raisins, dates, and coconut. You can't beat this recipe as far as nutrition goes. Try to find organic varieties of each ingredient - and of course raw!
If you want real, raw, cruelty-free, high quality, efficient and delicious energy bars, have a nosh on these. Don't look at those sugary, refined protein filled candy bars in the grocery store. For some inexplicable reason, they happen to be called "power bars". It's a joke. The best brand on the market is the Larabar (or the Clif bar for more protein). However, you can make better recipes yourself, plus add in a bunch of other awesome ingredients. You've got the power! Get it...
I was snacking on the mix as I made the recipe and immediately felt a difference, they gave me enough strength to get through a workout and then they made an excellent post-exercise snack, paired with my green protein smoothie. I had a bit of extra mix that I shaped into tiny cupcakes and I thought... hey, I could top these off with dark chocolate to make it a sweet superfood treat. Done.

How to make MitoXcell Superfood Energy Bars:
Throw the dry ingredients (keep a little bit of each ingredient to add in a second) in your food processor, then add the dates and raisins and process until everything it starts to stick together. If too dry, add more dates or coconut oil. Put in the remaining dry ingredients you left out and mix in with your hands. Press into a lined pan and set in the fridge for an hour or more. Cut into bars and store for up to one week. If you have extra, shape them into cupcakes and top off with raw chocolate.
