POPPED AMARANTH, PUMPKIN SEED AND MANGO ENERGY BARS

These snack bars are a perfect protein boost after a work out or simply delicious as a sweet treat in a lunch box. Easy to make and packed with goodness.

Amaranth is a grain similar to quinoa and is a high-quality plant-based protein source. It does not only boast two essential amino acids, lysine and methionine but is also high in iron, calcium and fiber. It is easily digestible and completely gluten-free.

The pumpkin seeds are also packed with iron, protein and fibre and are full of vitamin e, minerals and various antioxidants. An absolute must for the post-work out treat.

Additionally the dried mango chunks are rich in vitamin a, c, e, as well as being a great source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which encourage healthy skin and boost the immune system.
