Packed with Omega-3’s, protein, and fiber, this date-cocoa-seed bar gets its superpower from good old-fashioned nutrients rather than sugar. The flavors are based on the Chocolate Fudge UltraMeal Rice Bar by Metagenics, but we think it looks and tastes heaps better. Plus, it doesn’t cost $2.50 a pop. Highway robbery never tastes very good. Superpowers are delicious.
What to buy: Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and antioxidants, chia seeds can be found online or at many health food and grocery stores. Crispy brown rice cereal, wheat germ, brown rice syrup, and flax seed meal can also be found at most health food and grocery stores. Be sure to use Medjool dates: They have enough sugar and moisture to keep the bars from drying out.
