Maqui Berry Superfood Almond Flour Bliss Bites

Maqui Berry Superfood Almond Flour Bliss Bites

Are these not the prettiest energy bites you’ve ever seen?! Same!

They’re full of nutritious ingredients, vitamin C, fibre, antioxidants, healthy energizing fats like coconut butter + almond flour + lightly sweetened naturally with pure organic maple syrup + vanilla.

To add a little crunch, instead of chocolate chips, I threw in some of Living Libations radiant raspberry granola, which also contains probiotics, aloe Vera, sea buckthorn + schizandra berry!

And of course, what’s an energy ball without some seeds? I threw in a tbsp. of chia seeds for added healthy fats, protein, amino acids, fibre + antioxidants!

MAQUI BERRY is a new superfood powder I’m trying because I read so much about its health benefits, ranging from:

  • high fibre
  • antioxidant + vitamin C powerhouse (it’s one of the highest ranked foods on the ORAC scale, which measures foods based on antioxidants content)
  • amazing for immunity + skin health (also a great way to promote collagen synthesis)
  • flavonoids + ellagic acid make it anti-inflammatory, so it can help with autoimmune disease, skin disorders, gut health issues, diabetes + heart health
  • naturally lowers cholesterol + regulars blood sugar levels
  • naturally fruity sweet flavour that reminds me of açai berry

YOU NEED:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1.5 tbsp. Navitas Organics maqui berry powder (swap for any superfood, adaptogen, protein, collagen or cacao powder!)
  • 2 tbsp. Living Intentions radiant raspberry granola (or fave granola/cacao nibs)
  • 2-3 tbsp. pure organic maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut butter
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • TOPPING: More granola

TO MAKE:

  • Add the ingredients to a bowl + mix with your hands until the batter is uniform + you can roll it in a ball.

  • Use a tbsp. to portion out the batter into balls or bites of your desired size, place on a plate + top with granola by gently pressing it into the bites.
  • Refrigerate to firm up + enjoy!
