So we have a confession. Actually, it is more like a guilty pleasure. We really like the Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider movies. There is something that is just so fun about them. When we heard that they were rebooting the Tomb Raider franchise, we were a bit skeptical. However, after seeing the trailer for it, we were optimistic. Want to see the new Tomb Raider before anyone else? Check out our recipe below and find out how you can attend an advanced screening!
In Tomb Raider, “Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Leaving everything she knows behind, Lara goes in search of her father’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.”
The inspiration for our Lara’s Energy Bites came from a couple different places. First, we wanted to create a healthy, energy packed snack that Lara might have in her pack. The next inspiration is a bit more subtle. With Lara being from the UK, we wanted to take a bit of color from the Union Jack. This was the reason we used blueberries, cranberries, and white chocolate! The result turned out fantastic and we can’t wait to take these on a hike!
Now, with our Lara’s Energy Bites you are ready for your own adventure! But before you get going, we are giving away 10 pairs of screening tickets for a sneak preview of Tomb Raider! 5 pairs will be given away here and 5 will be given away on Instagram!
