These Raw Energy Blueberry Bites Will Break The Internet
By Tracey Seaman
In this world of exotic superfoods (we’re looking at you sachi inchi), regular down-home blueberries remain a champion. They’re readily available, fresh or frozen, and they combine juicy sweetness with superstar doses of vitamins K and C, manganese, vitamins E and B6, thiamin, riboflavin and copper. Plus, they’re loaded with antioxidants, which fight cancer, protect the heart and brain, help maintain skin health and keep aging at bay. If all that isn’t enough, blueberries are anti-inflammatory, too.
Of course, blueberries are delicious on their own, or stirred into yogurt. But when blended into energy bites along with other wholesome, health-boosting ingredients like oats, almonds, chia and flax seeds, you get simple-to-make, easy to grab-and-go snacks with tons of fiber, protein and crunch. Not to mention that they’re crazy-delicious and kid-friendly, too. These tasty morsels will give you an energy boost, help curb your hunger and revitalize you from the inside out. Welcome to your new favorite snack.
