Vegan Seeded Hemp Protein Bars

by The Chantal Team

​These no-bake bars are packed with plant-based protein and omegas found in the hemp. Fresh dates give them a subtle and nourishing sweetness that is scrumptious and so satisfying. They are perfect for after a workout, for a mid-afternoon pick me up or even as breakfast on-the-go.

  4. 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.
