Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars

Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars

Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars have become one of my favourite go-to snacks or desserts when I’m on the go or simply want something that’s high in protein, filling and satisfying to my sweet tooth at the same time (win-win). These protein bars are not like your standard protein bars that you find in most grocery stores, they contain only whole food ingredients that you and I both can find in our pantry.

  • Dry
  • 1 1/2 Cup Hemp Protein Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Shelled Hemp Seed
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts ground into a coarse Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds roughly chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds ground
  • 1/4 Cup Dried Mulberries
  • 2 Tablespoons Cacao Nibs – roughly chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Spirulina Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • Wet
  • 1 1/2-2 Cups Dates - about 20 - pitted
  • 1/2 Cup Dried Tart Cherries – or dried Cranberries if you can’t find dried Tart Cherries
  • 5 Tablespoons Coconut Oil Melted
  • 1 Heaping Tablespoon Almond Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Water Start With 1/4 and add gradually
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • Dry
  • Coarsely grind the walnuts and chia seeds.
  • Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and combine well
  • Set aside.
  • Wet
  • Combine all wet ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor. This mixture is very thick and sticky so you’ll need a powerful kitchen appliance or mix in small batches. Start with 1/4 cup of water in this mixture.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the large mixing bowl with dry ingredients. This is where you can adjust the water and pay close attention to how much you use.
  • Using your hands (the best tools for this!), massage and combine the mixture until everything has come together to form a large ball.
  • If the mixture gets too wet, simply add more cocoa or hemp protein powder. If the mixture isn’t wet enough, try adding more coconut oil or a few more dates. The desired texture is a thick, chewy, sticky bar.
  • In a 20 x 20 cm wax paper lined pan, evenly spread the protein bar mixture. Using your hands and fingertips firmly press the mixture into an even layer until it’s even and smooth on top.
  • Chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
  • Cut into small pieces or 12 whole bars.
  • Wrap individual bars in oiled waxed paper – shiny side inside. Place in an airtight container and keep in the fridge or freezer.
