I made these vegan hemp protein bars last week and I wasn’t really planning on sharing the recipe but I wrote it down…just in case, and I’m so glad I did because they are so yummy!
You’ll need about 5 minutes to make them, then pop them in the fridge and shortly thereafter, presto! No-Bake Vegan Hemp Protein Bars! These bars are all-natural, preservative free, plant-based, easy to make and they tastes great. I don’t think you could ask for much more!
Hemp as a protein source
Organic hemp protein is a wonderful source of plant-based protein, it’s high in fibre and rich in essential fatty acids.
Hemp is one of my favourite plant-based protein sources. I eat hemp seeds daily and use organic hemp protein often in smoothies and recipes like these vegan hemp protein bars.
What makes hemp so fantastic is that it’s a complete protein, meaning it contains all 9 essential amino acids the body requires to make proteins. It’s also a great alternative to animal sources of protein because it’s low in saturated fats.
