INGREDIENTS

60g/ ½ cup plant-based protein powder

100g/ ½ cup dates, pitted, soaked overnight

150g/ 1 cup raw almonds, soaked overnight

150g/1 cup raw Brazil nuts, soaked overnight

50g/ 1/3 cup pumpkins seeds

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 Tbsp hemp seeds

1 tsp cup coconut oil, melted

1 Tbsp raw honey

Pinch of sea salt

Extra raw almonds and pumpkin seeds for topping

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350°F/175C.  Drain the water from the dates and nuts, and then place both in a blender with seeds, salt, honey and coconut oil. Process on high 2 minutes, then scrape down the sides, and process again.  

Add the protein powder and process another 1-2 minutes. Continue processing and scraping the sides until fully combined.

Prepare an 8×8 baking pan by laying parchment paper crisscross, allowing the ends to hang over the edges.

Transfer the batter to the baking pan. Spread into a smooth layer with a spatula.

Place a few extra raw almonds and pumpkin seeds on top, gently pressing them into the batter to set.  Bake for 18-20 minutes until the edges are brown.  Remove from the oven. Cool in the pan 30 minutes, then remove using sides of parchment paper.

Slice into 16 bars.

HEMP SEED OIL FOR YOUR SKIN

Hemp seeds can also be great for your skin too. 

REVERSE SKIN AGING

The content of omega 3 and omega 6 help to restore skin elasticity.

Hemp seed oil will reach the deep layers and so can reset the production of collagen in the skin to help keep wrinkles at bay.

SKIN MOISTURISER

Hemp oil can help to keep your skin healthy from pollution.  Apply some at night to lock in moisture and prevent your skin from drying out.

SKIN CLEANSER

Hemp oil can be used as a cleanser, especially if you have acne because the oil will not clog the pores. 

It will help to remove excess oil from your skin.  You can mix it with some other oils such as tea tree oil. 

It is also anti inflammatory, to soothe problem skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis or dermatitis.
