All ingredients we use are thoughtfully there for good reason - they're really tasty as well as being full of good nutrition. Organic ingredients are used as often as possible, and we like to keep things simple - using as few ingredients as necessary. A brief overview of the ingredients we use and why they're good for us:
ORGANIC OATS : a yummy, filling source of soluble fiber, organic oats are the base of many of our energy bites. Oats also contain a bunch of good things like minerals and antioxidants that help keep your heart healthy.
WALNUTS : these nuts are not only shaped like little brains, they're great food for your brain! They're packed with omega 3's - and actually considered one of the world's healthiest foods!
ALMONDS : considered the most nutrient dense nut, this power house is full of vitamin E which is great for your skin. We use an almond butter in many products that is made up of 100% almonds - no fillers, no additives.
PEANUTS : helps maintain healthy skin, hair, and muscles, and is a super source of protein!
SUNFLOWER SEEDS : a great source of Vitamin E which your skin loves, and magnesium which can help keep you feeling calm.
LOCAL IOWA HONEY : using honey that's made from bees that live in the same area as you can help alleviate allergy issues. This all natural sweetener is a great alternative to using white sugar as it won't spike your blood sugar as quick.
ORGANIC MAPLE SYRUP : full of vitamins and minerals, organic maple syrup adds a rich sweet flavor to our goods.
ORGANIC RASINS : full of fiber, potassium, B vitamins, and iron.
DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS : the tastiest of the healthy ingredients, small amounts of dark chocolate can help fight inflammation and lower blood pressure.
UNSWEETENED COCONUT : this healthy fat is also full of fiber and loads of minerals and helps your brain function at its best.
COCOA POWDER : full of iron, magnesium, and zinc, it also helps reduce the risk of blood clots and increases blood flow.
