Double Hemp Protein Bars

Hempbars

I made Double Hemp Protein Bars earlier this week and immediately had to make a double batch the next day, they are that good. One of the reasons I am so excited about this recipe is that it is delicious new way for me to use protein hemp powder, an ingredient that I have mostly just used in smoothies until now.  Plus, I discovered a new love for freeze dried fruit and the way they add a pleasurable, sweet, airy crunch to any bite.

I already have a number of variations of this recipe swimming around in my head with other fruit and flavor possibilities not to mention it would be easy to use cannabis infused coconut oil for a healthy edible. May I also point out that there is no processed sugar, gluten, dairy, or eggs necessary to making these. There is however, plenty of hemp.

Protein Hemp Bars (yields about 16)

2/3C hemp seeds

1/2C hemp protein powder

1C shredded coconut

2/3C pumpkin seeds

1C freeze dried strawberries

1/3C melted coconut oil

1/4C cacao nibs (optional)

10 medjool dates

pinch of salt

  1. Cream together dates and coconut oil in a food processor until it resembles a paste.
  2. Pulse pumpkin seeds and coconut in a food processor to a course crumble and add to date mixture.
  3. Add all other ingredients and combine well.
  4. Pour crumbly mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  5. Press mixture into a firm 1/2″ thick square.
  6. Chill in fridge until firm.
  7. Cut into single sized bars and store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

It only takes about 10 minutes to put these together not including the chill time. Simple, delicious, nutritious. Hope you enjoy and please share your variations in the comments!
