Superfood Protein Bars



Keep refrigerated or frozen. Due to the high fat content, these don't keep their shape well at room temperature.

Enjoy! We found this recipe at A Clean Bake!
 
Ingredients:
 
2 cups unflavored hemp protein powder
1/2 cup ground flax meal
1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated monk fruit sweetener or granulated stevia - Optional
2 cups nut butter of choice
1/2 cup coconut oil melted
10 pitted medjool dates
1 cup cacao nibs + more for garnish
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut for garnish optional
 
 
 
 
Instructions:
 
Lightly grease a 14" rectangular pan and set aside.
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the "s" blade, pulse the protein powder, flax meal, cocoa powder and sweetener (if using) together a couple times to combine.
 
Add the nut butter, coconut oil and dates and process until the batter comes together in a large mass and there are no clumps of date left. You may need to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl a couple times to make sure everything gets incorporated.
 
Add the cacao nibs and pulse 2-3 times to incorporate (or transfer to a bowl and fold them in by hand).
 
Turn the dough into the prepared pan and use your hand or a spatula to press into a single, tightly-packed layer.
 
Sprinkle additional cacao nibs and shredded coconut on top, if you want, for added texture and flavor.
 
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before cutting into bars.
