One of the easiest ways to make sure you're getting your daily dose is to pop all your powders into a snack you can consume each day. We've run through a recipe for a fabulously supercharged coconut ice, and now we've got a recipe for the perfect granola bar. One that you can stash in your handbag and eat on the run.
