Antioxidant Aztec Bars
Antioxidants are SO easy to incorporate into your daily routine, especially with the help of our no bake Antioxidant Aztec bars! These bars are PACKED with antioxidants and healthy fats, providing you with a steady stream of energy all day long while helping to fight oxidative stress within the body. So many of us already deal with outside stressors, so why not alleviate some of the stress that we may not know is occuring within our bodies by providing it with the micronutrients it needs! These no bake bars are gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free making them the perfect snack for the whole family. They’re also so easy to make and can be kept for up to 2 months (however we doubt that they’ll last that long!). Don’t be intimidated by the lengthy ingredient list, we just wanted to pack in as much as we could, and trust us we could have added so much more! The beautiful thing about these bars is that you can tweak them to your liking, so get creative!

* Soaking the almonds is not a necessary step, however it is preferred for individuals with digestive issues. Soaking releases enzymes within the almonds which allows for better and easier digestion.
** The almond peel contains tannins, which inhibit nutrient absorption, therefore soaking and removing the peel from your almonds allows for more nutrient absorption and easier digestion.
*** We chose to wait until the last step to add our cashews in order to include some texture in our bars, however feel free to add them whenever you’d like!
