These tahini hemp seed bars are my new favourite snack/obsession/dessert/life…whatever you wanna call them. They are so good. They’re perfectly chewy and sweet and I really just want to sit down with a whole pan and not share a single one. But I’ll at least share the recipe with you so you can enjoy these amazing bars too!
These tahini hemp seed bars feature some of my favourite ingredients: tahini, coconut, hemp seeds, dates and maple syrup. Let’s take a look at a few of these powerhouse ingredients!
Tahini is a paste much like nut butters but it’s made from ground sesame seeds. It’s a big time staple in my kitchen and I use it daily in everything from sauces to dressings and desserts. I even eat it by the spoonful. High in iron and plenty of vitamins and minerals, I’d highly recommend adding a daily dose of creamy tahini to your diet! Buy it here.

Hemp seeds are also a huge staple in my kitchen. High in protein, iron and loads of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants they’re a true superfood that everyone can benefit from. I love adding them to smoothies, salads, eating them on their own or using them in recipes. They have a soft, creamy texture and slightly nutty flavour. Buy them here.
