½ cup almonds (or nut of choice) ¼ cup chia seeds ½ cup hemp hearts 1 cup ALOHA vanilla protein powder (about 6 scoops) 2 tbsp cacoa nibs ½ cup pumpkin seeds ½ cup cocoa powder dash cinnamon
20 pitted dates 5 tbsp coconut oil, melted ½ cup water 1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Add almonds and chia seeds into high-speed blender and coarsely grind into a fine mixture. 2. Pour into a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the dry ingredients. Set aside. 3. Combine all wet ingredients in a high-speed blender, adding the water first. The mixture is very sticky and thick, so it may take time to blend completely. 4. Pour wet ingredient mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Using your hands, fold the ingredients together (like you’re kneading bread) until everything is together in a large ball. 5. Place the ball on an 8x8 inch parchment lined pan, pressing and spreading the mixture evenly onto the pan. 6. Let chill in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. 7. Cut into 12-18 bars. Store in the fridge in an air tight container and enjoy throughout the week.
