Goji Berry and Cacao Snack Bars

Goji Berry and Cacao Snack Bars

A much healthier alternate to the high sugar energy bars currently on the market.

Goji berries are known to be a very dense nutritional food boasting loads of anti-oxidents and immune boosting properties. They are well reasearched and have many uses, including free-radical fighters and as rememdies for inflammatory diseases: cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, and heart disease. High in protein, betacaratonoids, Vitamins A, B complex, C, E,  iron, amino acids (protein building blocks), essential fatty acids, selnium, and many trace minerals. They are truly a "superfood".

Raw cacao nibs are hard to find, use the unsweetened cacao if you can't find raw.
