These tasty morsels are nutritionally dense, raw and vegan. They’re also super quick and easy to make.
The magical green ingredient in these energy bars, and what makes them so nutritious, is moringa.
Perhaps you’re thinking this is just another wacky *must have* superfood that’s all hype and no trousers. It’s the new kid on the block of exotic superfoods available in the West, and remains a bit of a mystery to most people. But give it a chance – it’s a cracking food, especially for those on a plant-based diet, because it’s mega-rich in protein, iron, and a host of other things. Read all about the impressive nutritional profile of moringa here. It’s also delicious, and its uses in sweet and savoury recipes are endless.
Ann and I are fans of moringa because we’re lucky enough to have a friend in Paris who is the first French importer of moringa, so she gave us the low-down, in addition to some delish homemade moringa snackeroonies. Thanks, Armelle!
Here’s my first experiment with our new favourite superfood. I hope you test these healthy green bites yourself – they’re sure to rock your teatime as much as a personalised doggie mug. I should know.
Super quick and easy to make. Add 30 mins to the total time for refrigeration if you want them to be more solid.
Let us know how these turn out for you, and your thoughts on moringa!
