Blueberry & Pomegranate Power Bars

Written by  Staff Writer
A day filled with work, school, family, volunteering, social commitments, and outside interest means you’re on the go and probably skipping meals, but you still need nutrients and energy to power thru the night. Quick, ready-to-eat, nutrient dense power bars help fill that need. They also help people who are looking for a snack to boost them during workouts or other physical activities.
While power bars should not become your daily meal replacement, they are great for adding energy before a workout or when you’re stuck in the office during lunchtime. And they beat other high fat or empty calorie food choices.

These Blueberry and Pomegranate Power Bars (recipe courtesy of the Popcorn Board) are full of nutrients and energy, delivered in a delicious, easy to pack and eat bar. They feature popcorn, a whole grain that provides carbohydrates and fiber to the diet. The mixture of popcorn, oats, nuts, and berries will fill you and fuel you and help get you to your next destination.
