Homemade Vegan Protein Bars.

Homemade protein bars! And they taste GOOD! REALLY good! Awesome way to enjoy the natural mood boosting benefits of protein, healthy fats, and chocolate!

Based on this recipe: http://wholenewmom.com/recipes/homemade-protein-bars/

1 cup Raw walnuts
1 cup Raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup Vanilla Chai Vega One protein powder
1/2 cup Shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt (Himalayan salt has 80 trace minerals and holds the wisdom of 1,000 yogis, but sea salt would also be fine)
1/2 cup Tahini
1/2 cup Coconut oil
2 tbsp. Maple syrup
2 100g gram bars of organic dark chocolate (85%)

Follow the same preparation instructions as the original recipe. To keep it simple, I melted the dark chocolate bars for the topping instead of making my own chocolate as the recipe suggests.

Also, I didn’t have any vanilla extract (just moved… everything is a little willy-nilly right now) so the Vanilla Chai Vega One protein powder was really perfect because of its vanilla flavour, protein, green food, probiotics, EFAs, and whole lot of other benefits (it’s a personal fave).

So easy and worth the ingredients if you don’t already have them!
