Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows in freshwater lakes and other natural sources of water. Used for thousands of years for its health benefits, it’s undergone a renaissance in recent years, even earning the coveted moniker of “superfood.”
In fact, some experts deem spirulina the most nutrient-dense food on the planet! That’s because it contains a good amount of protein, vitamins, minerals and other healthful nutrients.
In addition, spirulina has the potential to help a variety of health conditions–including many of those that afflict people with candida overgrowth–and prevent others.

And if you’re looking for an amazing recipe that makes great use of spirulina, these high protein Spirulina Snack Granola Bars are it!
Chewy, chock-filled with several other superfood ingredients and tasty as all get-out, these bars offer a choice when it comes to your blue-green algae ingredient (you get to pick how much or how little you add).
They’re a cross between a soft granola bar and a raw cookie dough ball in small, square, bite-sized pieces. You can’t go wrong with these Spirulina Snack Granola Bars, in my opinion!
Spirulina Snack Granola Bars are also:
- Candida-diet friendly ( in stage 3 or later)
- Mixed up in about 5 minutes
The HH and I loved these as take-along bars on the weekend when we ran errands and took the dogs downtown to see more of our city. They held up well in the car (wrapped in plastic) and offered a wonderful energy boost mid-afternoon!
