Coconut Turmeric Mood-boosting Bars

Mafalda Coconut Turmeric Mood-boosting Bars 01
Mafalda Coconut Turmeric Mood-boosting Bars

The month of December is here, and sometimes stress gets the best of us (black Friday anyone?!) I created these mood-boosting bars spiked with Mucuna a natural antidepressant to elevate the spirits and Ashwagandha to alleviate stress and anxiety. Its so delicious and effective that I had to share.

Great for a pre- or -post Christmas shopping snack (or weekend morning pick-me-up) these delicious and highly addictive bars (there was a lot of nibbling during the making of these babies) are infused with the new-it-powder-everyone-is-talking-about, our nº 3 Blend, a natural source of happy vibes containing a high dose of anti-aging antioxidants and nutrients.

These bars not only taste insanely good but they won’t lead to a crash like the stamina-promising artificial supplements and store bought bars that contain a ton of sugars. Some more added bonuses of this nº3 Blend? It’s an inflammation reducer, heart protecter, cancer fighter, metabolism booster and contains the amino acid L-theanine, which supports calm alertness. And we could all use some of that.

Honorable mention goes out to the almonds, cashews and hemp seeds for their sources of fiber, healthy fats and plant based proteins that also contain sustainable energy properties.

Now go get your smile on!
