Hemp Protein Bars (Raw, Vegan, Gluten-free, Refined Sugar Free)

Sunday, July 05, 2015

Protein bars are one of my favorite food to make. Not only are they easy to make, but also easily portable to school or workplace. So whenever I need some energy boost, I can take a bite at these yummy and wholesome protein bars. I seldom eat the store-bought ones after developing this recipe as I can customize my protein bars according to my needs and preferences and it's much cheaper to make your own bars. Take a look at this recipe and you'll realise how simple it is!


Ingredients:

1 cup + 2 pitted dates
1 cup mixed nuts and/ or seeds (I used brazil nuts and sunflower seeds)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup hemp flour
3 Tbsp chia seeds
1 scoop of protein powder of your own choice (I used LivWell's Raw Vanilla Plant Protein Powder)
2 Tbsp goji berries
1 tsp Aduna moringa powder
Water if added

Directions:


  1. Soak the pitted dates into water for around 30 mins
  2. Put the nuts and/ or seeds into a food processor until coarsely grounded
  3. Add the dates into the food processor and blend until a dough-like mixture is formed
  4. Remove the dough from the food processor and place it into a large mixing bowl
  5. Mix in other ingredients into the bowl and mix them well with your hands
  6. Add water (one tsp at a time) if the mixture seems to be a bit too dry and crumbly
  7. Press the mixture firmly to a bread tin lined with baking sheets and place it in the freezer for at least half an hour
  8. Remove from the freezer and cut it into bars
  9. Wrap them with baking papers or plastic wraps if you are bringing them out with you <3
