Superfood Chocolate Bar

This recipe is perfect when you are craving something sweet yet healthy. There are also the perfect on-the-go breakfast or mid-afternoon snack.They are so filling and nutritious because they contain various superfoods like chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. These are great source of omega-3 fats, protein, minerals and vitamins.
If you like to run or exercise, these bars will keep you energized during your work out. What I especially like is that you can easily adapt this recipe with what you have on hand in your pantry, the possibilities are endless (for example substitute dried raisins with any other dried fruits such as dried apricots,..).
