What’s your favorite takeout - Indian, Thai, Peruvian?! Not deterred by long lines at that amazing Filipino food truck? Then you’re going to love Golden bars!
When I experimented with energy bar recipes I was amazed that so many of the bars out there had the same ingredients and flavors: peanut butter, chocolate, banana, apple pie, ..., cookie this, and cake that! I wondered why we are limited to the same old flavors of energy bars, and of snacks in general, while we are spoiled for choice when it comes to eating out. There is a whole world of flavors and combinations waiting to be discovered at snack time! And this is one of the key ideas behind Golden bars - amazing flavors in your snacks!
As an important bonus, using different combinations of certain ingredients can do wonders for wellness. Did you know that one of the key ingredients in Golden bars, turmeric (scientific name curcuma longa), has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antimicrobial, and anticancer properties [NIH]? Wow!
Cardamom is another special ingredient we use in Golden bars. It is incredibly high in antioxidants which can prevent cell damage. That in itself is a great reason to consume cardamom, but that’s not where its powers end. What makes Cardamom a super ingredient is the flavor it imparts. Completely biased view, but I think it helps make Golden bars the best tasting bar out there.
