    Vegan Hemp Protein Bars

    Servings: 16 bars

    Keywords: Vegan, Snack

    • Prep Time: 45 mins
    • Cook Time: 0 mins
    • Total Time: 45 mins




    • 1 cup (150g) raw almonds
    • 2 cups (350g) lightly packed soft pitted dates
    • 1 tbsp cinnamon
    • ½ cup (70g) 369 Foods, Australian Grown Hemp Protein Powder
    • ½ cup (120g) nut or seed butter of choice (hemp butter, peanut butter, almond butter, tahini etc)
    • 2 tbsp (30ml) maple syrup (optional)
    • ⅛ tsp sea salt (optional)


    1. First place the nuts in a processor and mix until broken down into a grainy consistency. It’s okay if there are still some large pieces but they should be mostly broken down.
    1. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend into a thick, sticky dough you can squeeze together between your fingers. If the dough seems too crumbly, add 1-2 tbsp warm water and process again.
    1. Line a 7 or 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper so the it sticks out over at least 2 sides of the pan.
    2. Transfer the dough to the pan and firmly press into an even layer. Take a few minutes to really work it into the pan, especially in the corners. If the dough is sticky, it can help to wet your hands.
    1. You can lift the bars out of the pan right away and slice into bars or transfer to the freezer (recommended) for 30-60 minutes before slicing for a firmer bar.
    2. Lift the bars out of the pan and slice into 16 bars.
