Hey, it’s Christian Bates, founder of Longevity Power. If I was stranded on an island with 1 food and I couldn’t have salads or smoothies, I would have the Longevity Snap Bar recipe. Promise me that you’ll think lovely thoughts of me when you end up making this 1-3 times a week starting now through the new year!
What makes this home-made bar a superstar? Unlike every other food bar, this one is 1) rich in superfoods and tonic herbs and 2) very low glycemic. When a little lucuma and stevia are the only sweeteners, you end up with a bar you can snack on all the time with no blood sugars ups and downs. The bar tastes like white chocolate caramel dessert, but has energizing substance to it like a wholesome snack should. And by adding in Longevity Power’s signature herbal formulas, we end up with my favorite strategy for health and longevity:
Taste + Health Density = Compliance + Results (I hope you like health-oriented math equations as much as I do!)
Longevity Snap Bar Recipe:
Blend the following in a food processor into a fine meal (do NOT over blend into an oily paste)
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
2 teaspoons lucuma powder
1 teaspoon Longevity Power’s Maca Bliss
1/2 teaspoon Longevity Power’s Longevity in a Bottle
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder. If you are less partial to stevia, use 1/16th teaspoon instead and add 1 tablespoon raw honey. If you love stevia like me, then use a sprinkle more, to taste.
After blending into a fine meal, add in:
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon melted organic raw cacao butter. Melts above 90*F. I usually use a low temperature oven to melt in a glass mason jar.
a couple pinches of ground vanilla bean or a couple drops of organic vanilla bean extract
OPTIONAL: For a basic almond-white chocolate flavored bar, leave as is. For a holiday flavor add a couple pinches of cinnamon powder, a tiny pinch of cloves and a tiny pinch/grate of nutmeg.
Blend for about 20 seconds. Prepare you molds of choice (chocolate bar molds, ice cube trays, small plates, almost anything!) by placing a few organic raw cacao nibs in the bottom of each mold trench. Pour batter into molds and place in freezer for 15-20 minutes or more. Bars become hard like chocolate. Remove from molds and keep in mason jars in fridge or very cool area. Or serve to your friends on plates garnished with almonds and cacao beans.
To your daily health goal!
