Easy 4­ Ingredient Gogi Coconut Energy Bites

“Energy” bars seem to get a really bad rap these days by most health professionals

— and I have to agree. That’s because the energy bars found in commercial grocery

and convenience stores are too often nothing more than glorified candy bars.

Making your own energy‐boosting treats is not only easy, it’s a great way to ensure

you are getting the nutrients you need from quality sources — plus you control the

quantity, which a big issue with most “energy” bars.

Below I will share the recipe for my Homemade Gogi Berry Energy Bites… but

first, some of their nutritional benefits:

Gogi Berries: a Tibetan fruit loaded with health benefits so numerous I can’t list

them all in this post. Here are the highlights:

● Contains 18 amino acids — 8 are essential and cannot be made by the body.

● 21 trace minerals including zinc, calcium, selenium, and phosphorus.

● Vitamins A, C, E, and B vitamins 1, 2, & 6.

● Antioxidant powerhouse that is also anti‐inflammatory, anti‐bacterial, and


● Immune supporter.

Pumpkin Seeds: pumpkin seeds are a tasty seed that provides a great source of

protein as well as:

● Phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, zinc, iron, copper, B vitamins, vitamin K, and Vitamin E.

● An alkaline‐forming seed that reduces inflammation and plays a role in

preventing kidney stone formation.

Sunflower Seeds: small but mighty just 1⁄4 cup provides all these benefits:

● A host of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, selenium, and magnesium

that are needed for strong bones, lowering blood pressure, and easing muscle

tension, migraine headaches, soreness, and fatigue.

● Antioxidant and detoxifying properties that naturally cleanse the body.

Coconut Butter: the benefits of coconut are vast and well‐known but here are the

top 3:

● Immune supporter and booster — rich in lauric acid that makes it anti‐

bacterial, anti‐fungal, and anti‐inflammatory.

● High in fiber, healthy fat is used for energy and tissue repair.

● Full of essential amino acids, magnesium, and calcium vital to nearly every

function in the body.
