Fruit and Nut Chia Seed Bars Recipe

chia seed energy bars, chia seed barsI’m always trying to incorporate Chia seeds into my diet; I sometimes sprinkle them over my eggs or make them into a pudding, but this way is by far one of my favorites. These Chia seed bars are super simple to make and are packed with nutrients. A yummy mix of mainly Chia, organic dried fruit and nuts, these little bars are sweet, have good texture, and are super filling, making them great for a quick grab-and-go breakfast or a hearty snack. These all-natural bars are an excellent source of omega-3’s, fiber, antioxidants and energy, and are lacking any fillers or processed sugars found in other over-the-counter energy bars. Enjoy!
