Matcha Hemp Protein Bars (Raw, Vegan, Gluten-free)

I always love to make my own protein bars as a pick-me-up snack and a pre-workout fuel. Not only because they are so easy to make, but also because I can customize them with my favorite superfoods. This time I made some with some matcha powder from Matcha Maiden, hemp seeds for the nutty flavor and hemp protein powder for the energy boost. I also added some raw cacao nibs for some extra crunchiness and a hint of chocolate flavors. This recipe has definitely became one of my favorite one that I’ve already made three batches of these in 2 weeks 😆

They are also a very good topping on smoothie or nice cream bowls 😃

This recipe makes 8-10 bars

Ingredients:

1¼ cups medjool dates (pitted)
1 cup mixed nuts or seeds (I used 1/2 cup pistachio and 1/2 cup pecans)
¼ cup hemp seeds
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 Tbsp matcha powder
2 Tbsp cacao nibs unsweetened

Directions:

  1. Place your choice of nuts & seeds into a food processor and process until coarsely ground. You don’t want it to be too fine, while remaining so texture of crunchiness
  2. Add the remaining ingredients (except cacao nibs) into the food processor and process until a dough-like mixture is formed.
  3. Lastly, gently fold in the cacao nibs and press the mixture firmly into a lined baking pan.
  4. Freeze for at least an hour until it is hardened. Cut then into bars and store them in the fridge for up to a week.
