Almond and Spirulina Bars

Looking for a quick snack to prepare that is packed with unique flavors and healthy ingredients? Look no further, this one's for you!

These snack bars are ideal for starting to incorporate spirulina into your diet! A simple and original way to use this super food. 

 

Spirulina is an algae that grows naturally in lakes and oceans. It is dried and then presented to us as a concentrated powder that I love to add to smoothies.

Almond Spirulina Bars are such a delicious way to start using this amazing superfood in your diet. I happily nibble on these bars knowing that spirulina is filled with:

  • Protein with all the essential amino acids, which makes it a complete source of protein. La spirulina contains 55% to 70% protein of excellent quality (proportion of amino acids and optimal digestibility), i.e. from 2,5 g to 3,5 g of protein per 5 g of powder 
  • Vitamins such as the group of vitamins B, C, D, A and E are all extremely important for optimal functioning of your body.
  • Iron - its richness in iron and vitamin B12 makes it a good ally for the athlete or the anemic or tired person. 
  • Chlorophyll - a powerful antioxidant known to support the blood, liver and a healthy immune system.


And that's just to name a few! :)
