The summer we’re teaming up again for a fun series specifically geared towards helping moms stay fit and healthy!
As a mom, finding time to fit a workout in during the day can be extremely challenging. If you’re finding yourself skipping workouts due to a busy schedule, learning how to sneak in an early morning workout before your family starts the day may be just what you need!
It doesn’t need to be long or complicated. Even waking up 25 minutes early for a quick workout can help get your day off to a great start! Take advantage of having your spouse or significant other home in case the kids need anything and head downstairs to work up a sweat.
When you’re done, it’s important to refuel. Since mornings can get a little, your best bet may be a homemade energy bar that you can prep ahead of time and eat quickly.
I developed some Wild Blueberry Energy Bars for a quick, grab and go breakfast option!
They’re packed with nutritious ingredients like Wild Blueberries, almonds and pumpkin seeds.
A few fun facts about Wild Blueberries compared to regular blueberries:
- They have a more intense blueberry flavor because they come from fields that contain hundreds of thousands of different blueberry plants. The mixture of berries from all the plants combined gives Wild Blueberries their unique flavor!
- They have twice the amount of andioxidants and more protective phytochemicals.
- They’re frozen at harvest, which locks in their nutrients.
- They’re available year round in the freezer section of many grocery stores and offer a convenient way to get your “Daily Dose of Wild Blue.”

Hi Lindsay! LOVE that pic of you working out with your little man strapped to you. And you know, I always buy frozen wild blueberries rather than fresh, it’s so cool to learn that they have a few more benefits. Thanks for sharing this recipe! 🙂
Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me says
I only like blueberries if they are baked in something. I cannot eat them on their own, so this recipe makes me so happy! I am going to have to give this a shot sometime. 🙂 Thank you for the recipe Lindsay!

These sound SO good! I’ve been on a blueberry kick lately, and these bars would be great for packing when I’m out and about with the girls!
These sound fabulous! I am going to try to make a batch to take with me on my upcoming mission trip where I’m going to need healthy, handy food to offset all the not-so-healthy stuff they will feed us!

Well, that pic makes me feel like a wuss. I do the dynamix ball with squats but dang… not with a wee little one on my back! 😉
These bars sound mighty tasty!
