I recently attended the fabulous Fitness and Health Bloggers Conference and sampled some seriously tasty Maple Energy Squares provided by Canada Maple Syrup. It was a welcome snack to stay alert during afternoon presentations.
They sent us with the recipe along with some Pure Canadian Maple Syrup.
Now it’s time for me to be honest. I am really unfamiliar with real maple syrup. It seemed so expensive and snooty. After sampling the syrup I was truly amazed. It is SO good.
Their website brags that “pure maple syrup has the same beneficial classes of antioxidant compounds found in berries, tomatoes, tea, red wine, whole wheat and flax seed.” Cool.
I went home and tested the bars on my own little monsters. Three cheers from them. These are perfect to pack in your purse when you are running errands. Instead of going for the free cookie at the grocery store, pull out your own naturally sweetened Maple Energy Bar.
Here is the recipe approved by acclaimed Sports Nutritionist, Barbara Lewin.
