9. New York Superfoods Chia Charger Bites
$8 per 10-ounce bag
Catherine and Jason Walsh are two athletes who were unhappy with eating tasteless energy bars before their workouts. Intrigued by the descriptions of chia seeds in the book Born to Run, they did some chia experiments in their kitchen and created a raw, gluten- and dairy-free chia energy bite, the Chia Charger.
The Xpresso flavor is a blend of peanut butter, organic cane juice, chia seeds, oats and organic, fair-trade coffee. Per bite, you get 120 calories, 7 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein, plus a little shot of caffeine. Chia Charger bites also come in a cranberry flavor with similar nutrition stats.
