HEALTHY protein bars can be hard to find & sometimes contain more sugar than protein! Our version is packed with protein, fibre & powered up with functional mushrooms for SO MANY added benefits.

Notes on ingredients:

  • Protein has satiety-promoting properties, supports muscle growth, and helps maintain steady blood glucose levels and energy. This recipe was created using a 100% pure whey protein isolate in chocolate flavour. You can try using a plant-based protein, however, the texture may be more chalky, depending on the brand.
  • Almond butter and flour are a great source of fibre, minerals like magnesium, & antioxidant superstars like vitamin E. Almonds help to balance blood sugar, support healthy cardiovascular function, and help to keep you energized.
  • Chia seeds can absorb more than 12 times their weight in water. This ability to hold water can prolong hydration and retain electrolytes in body fluids, as well as extend endurance.

We have included Eversio's Balance Blend, which contains health-enhancing qualities such as:

  • A sense of calm for better stress adaptation with Reishi mushrooms
  • Increasing mental agility for increased productivity with Lion’s Mane mushrooms
  • Gut, blood sugar balance, and immune support from Maitake and Shiitake mushrooms
  • Increased overall cellular health from antioxidants found in all functional mushrooms, leading to reduced chronic inflammation & prevention of premature aging

It's so simple to add to any dish, like salad dressings, lattes, or smoothies.
