Spirulina Breakfast Bites

These bites are made almost entirely of superfoods and make for a great, healthy snack to have either for breakfast or on-the-go!





Ingredients

  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 Tbsp spirulina
  • 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder (or nibs)
  • 1 Tbsp raw maca powder
  • 1 scoop protein powder (Life's Basics Vanilla is highly recommended)
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp agave nectar (use 3 Tbsp if not using maple syrup)
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • ¼ cup dried goji berries

Method

1) Blend dry ingredients (first five) in a blender.
2) Add syrup(s), and blend until a dough forms.
3) Empty dough into a mixing bowl.
4) Liquefy strawberries in the blender.
5) Pour liquid onto dough, add goji berries, and mix well.
6) Line a cookie sheet with foil or wax paper.
7) Using heaping tablespoonfuls, plop dough onto the cookie sheet evenly spaced.
      (should get about 9 plops)
8) Turn oven on to lowest setting ("warm", or about 120 degrees),
      and place cookie sheet in oven overnight (or about 8 hrs).
9) Remove from oven, and enjoy! :)

*Note: Bites may be wrapped individually and stored at room temperature for easy, on-the-go snacks.
