Chocolate Chia Workout Bars Recipe

Often referred to as a superfood for good reason, chia seeds are a fantastic source of energy for a workout.




  • 1 cup (220g) coconut butter
  • 1/3 cup (115g) dark raw honey
  • ½ cup (113g) salted and roasted sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup (82g) chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup (27g) raw cacao powder
  • ¼ cup (20g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup (44g) dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ tsp sea salt


1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the coconut butter and honey. While that is warming up, in a medium bowl, mix together the sunflower seeds, chia seeds, cacao powder, coconut, chocolate chips and salt.

2. When the liquids are melted, about 5 minutes, pour them over the dry ingredients and stir well. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use another piece of parchment paper to flatten the mixture to about ¼-inch (6 mm) thick, then refrigerate for 1 hour.

3. Once it has solidified, cut into bars. Store in the fridge or freezer.
