Super Crunchy Chia Seed Bars -Healthy, Paleo, and Keto Snack

I love chia seed and use them a variety of ways for many reasons. At first of all, they are gluten/grain free naturally. Also, one tablespoon of Chia Seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries. If you haven’t tried Chia seeds, you should!

Their texture can be a little strange if you aren’t used to them but they seriously give you energy all day. These energy chia seed bars are a great snack or treat for kids or a healthy breakfast addition if you need the extra energy. They are also Paleo, low-carb, keto, vegetarian, sugar, dairy, and grain free.
