By EatRightOntario on

The natural sweetness of dates makes these bliss bars extra tasty. You’ll get a protein punch with the nuts and seeds to keep you going. 


Ingredients

  • ¾ cup large flake oats
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup hemp hearts
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 ½ cups pitted medjool dates
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Instructions

  1. In a food processor, pulse together oats, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts and sunflower seeds until fine and crumbly.
  2. Add dates, nut butter, cocoa powder and vanilla and process until mixture forms into a ball.
  3. Press mixture for a least 1 hour before cutting into bars to serve


TIP: Place in the freezer for about 2 hours for a chewy textured bar. You can also make these into bite size balls. Use 1 Tbsp (15 mL) of the mixture to roll into balls, the kids will love helping out with these!
