Food blog Wellness Mama creates an easy and healthy recipe for DIY chia seed bars. The superfood has gained praise in recent months and is no longer just for adults. While store-bought granola bars make for an energy-boosting school snack, these chia seed bars are an inexpensive alternative that the whole family will enjoy.

The snacks are made with a blend of chia seed, coconut oil, Nebdjool dates and chocolate chips. The energy bars are also infused with hints of natural vanilla extracts and cinnamon powder for enhanced flavor.

Taking only 20 to prep, this healthy snack is a great option for on-the-go parents who want to ensure that their child is getting the nutrients they need. In addition to being a great breakfast alternative, these bars can be enjoyed before lunch or after an active play session.
