Paleo Brazil Nut, Lime, & Hemp Power Bars

Paleo Brazil Nut, Lime, & Hemp Power Bars-4074

This recipe was born of a flavor combo of some shortbread cookie I had in my past.  A magical combination of Brazil nuts and lime.  Before those cookies…Brazil nuts were very under appreciated in my world.  Now I wonder how I didn’t always love them.  SO buttery and SO nutritious!

Just two Brazil nuts gives you enough of the trace mineral selenium’s RDA…a nutrient key in the function of your thyroid and metabolism and very hard to get in our food.  It is also a great antioxidant, combating those free radicals we encounter in our day-to-day lives.

Hemp hearts are another nutritious addition, touted for their highly digestible protein content, as well as containing all 9 essential amino acids.  It also has high amounts of essential fatty acids.

Since I am always looking for new and creative grab and go snacks, this one was a fun one for me.  A twist on some of my family’s favorites, but in a totally new flavor profile.    Your taste buds will thank you for something new and fresh!

  4. I can’t say that I would have thought about putting this combo together. I recently learned that about Brazil nuts so anyway to get those in regularly sounds like a great idea. Thanks for posting at Healing With Food Friday. Please come back and share again this week.

  5. I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate brazil nuts into our diet and these bars are a seriously delicious one! I love the addition of the lime – what a great healthy snack, Tessa.
