  • Cook: 30 mins

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients:

½ cup pumpkin seeds

½ cup walnuts

½ cup hemp seeds

½ cup organic hemp protein powder

¼ cup chia seeds

¼ cup sunflower seeds

2 Tbl bee pollen

Wet Ingredients:

12 dates, pitted (soaked in hot water if you do not have a high speed blender)

2 Tbl raw honey (or manuka honey is even better!)

⅓ cup raw coconut oil

¼ cup cacao (or cocoa) powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch cayenne

pinch sea salt

Extra ingredients:

⅓ cup toasted millet (you can buy raw millet then toss in dry saute pan until nutty aromatics rise and browning surfaces)

1 Tbl ground flaxseed

2 Tbl goji berries, roughly chopped

Directions

1Add all dry ingredients to a food processor and pulse on high for 10 seconds using caution not to over-process. You want a mealy texture with some pieces of nuts/seeds still intact (see photo above). Pour into a large mixing bowl and set aside.

2In a blender, add all the wet ingredients and blend until fully combined and smooth.

3Pour the wet mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients and stir. Add in the extra ingredients and stir until well-combined.

4Press into a parchment-lined baking pan (11x7 works well but you can also use other sizes depending on desired thickness).

5Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

6Remove from refrigerator and cut into bars and wrap in paper or individual snack bags. Keeps in the fridge for about 1 week or the freezer for 1 month.
