Vegan Seeded Superfood Protein Bars
These no-bake bars are packed with plant-based protein and omegas found in the superseed – hemp. Fresh dates give them a subtle and nourishing sweetness that is scrumptious and so satisfying. They are perfect for after a workout, in school lunchboxes, or even as breakfast on-the-go.
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds

Soften the coconut oil, by placing the jar in a bowl of warm water. Set aside.
Add the dry ingredients to a food processor or blender and pulse quickly to keep some texture and give it crunch.
Place this dry mixture in a bowl and set aside.
Add the wet ingredients, including the cacao powder, to the food processor and blend until smooth and paste-like. Add a spoonful of water to help with the blending, if required.
Add the date mixture to the dry ingredients, along with the oats and stir until well combined.
Press the dough into a 20 x 20cm baking dish, making sure to compact it firmly.
