Seed Bars…

on January 23, 2013

So simple and SO good for you.

These beauties are a good source of protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins & minerals… oh, and they taste pretty good too!  🙂

What you’ll need….

  • 1/2c of unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4c of flax seeds
  • 1/4c of sunflower seeds
  • 1/4c of chia seeds
  • 2tbsp of pumpkin seed protein powder
  • 1/2c of tahini (or any nut or seed butter)
  • 2tbsp of maple syrup
  • 2tbsp of organic dark chocolate chips
  • a pinch of sea or himalayan salt

Mix all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate chips.

Press the mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan.

Over a simmer pot of water, melt the two tablespoons of dark chocolate chips until just melted…….. with a spatula, spread a thin layer of the melted chocolate over the protein mixture.  Sprinkle a little bit of salt over the top and they’re done!

Place them in the freezer for about twenty minutes and slice!

Simple!

We recommend that these be stored in the freezer………. we didn’t want to use a whole bunch of sticky sweet stuff, which of course would hold them together just a bit better at room temperature.  🙂

Happy, healthy eating!
