Chocolate-Hemp Protein Bars

March 20, 2012

Makes around 10 bars 

Halved and altered just slightly from the original recipe, these bars are not only filled with protein, they are also pretty tasty. They are sweet, but I added sea salt to counter balance the sugar from the dates. Have them as a mid-day snack or a super nutritious dessert.

Dry ingredients

½ cup (240 ml) pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup (240 ml) coconut flakes

1/4 cup (120 ml) hemp seeds

1/4 cup (120 ml) hemp protein powder

3 tbsp rolled oats

2 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp cacao nibs

 

Wet ingredients

10 fresh medjool dates, pitted

3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

2 tbsp coco powder

1/2  tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp sea salt

In a food processor, pulse the dry ingredients quickly. Do not over-process, you want it crunchy. Place the mixture in a bowl and set aside. Add all wet ingredients to the food processor and blend to combine. The consistency will look very “
Powerbar-ish”, sort of like Silly Putty. Pour the “wet” ingredients over the dry ingredients, add the oats and stir (mashing the dry into the date mixture) until well combined. Spread the mixture evenly into a small baking dish and press firmly to make sure it becomes quite compact. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Cut into bars. Wrap them in parchment paper and store in an air-tight container. Will keep around a week in the fridge.
