I am going to let you in on a little secret: I’m in love!
WITH HEMP SEEDS! They are so yummy. Also, they’re chock-full of protein, and have a great 3:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. Lately, I have been sprinkling them all over my yogurt, and in my green smoothies! But I really wanted to create a recipe where hemp is the star- where you can taste the deliciousness, and the hemp flavor is not hidden.
That’s where these bars come in. They are really easy to make, and only a few ingredients are needed. There are no nuts in this recipe, so the bars are great for our nut-free friends, too! The combination of the coconut-chocolate flavor is mixed with the earthy taste of hemp seeds and the sweetness of raw honey, to create a scrumptious bar!
These treats are best stored in an airtight container in the freezer, and eaten cold. If they are too firm to eat, let them thaw at room temperature for a few minutes. I brought these in my lunchbox to school with me, and they gave me a great boost of energy! Enjoy, and let me know how you liked them in the comments below 🙂
