Raw Vegan Chocolate Hemp Protein Bars
Here’s a delicious raw vegan chocolate protein bar recipe.
I used natural hemp protein powder for this recipe, but you can use any protein powder of your choice. I also used tahini, but you can substitute it with another nut or seed butter you may have. Some people are surprised by this, but there are many ways to use tahini in dessert recipes.
I didn’t want to use the food processor to make these protein bars, so I used a mix of seeds like chia, poppy and sesame. I decided to add some oat flour I already had, and some dried fruits too. If you want to cut the carbs, use just seeds or ground nuts.
- 40 g (1.4 oz) dark chocolate (dairy-free / vegan)
- 2-3 tablespoons of hemp protein powder
- 2-3 tablespoons of tahini
- ½ cup of seeds / oat flour
- Dried fruit – optional
Melt the chocolate and mix it with tahini.
Add the protein powder and whisk well.
Finally, add the seeds and the rest of the ingredients and mix everything together.
Put in molds and refrigerate overnight.
Did you know that sesame seeds are a powerful mood-boosting and stress-relieving food? They are rich in nutrients associated with muscle and nerve function; and since the seeds may remain undigested, tahini is a great way to eat them.
