These nutrient-packed bars are great for a mid-afternoon energy boost, or as a snack before, during or after exercise. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, high quality protein, and lots of fiber. These bars are a healthy homemade snack for training for races too!
1 cup lightly toasted nuts (I use organic walnuts)
1 cup dried fruit, chopped into small pieces (I use organic dried blueberries)
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
4 heaping tbsp organic dark cocoa or carob powder (I prefer organic cacao powder)
