Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

as all have said... very soft. I made them into balls and then rolled them in chopped dried coconut. Still squishy, but not sticky anymore. My first grader LOVES them! He thinks they're candy because I used chocolate hemp protein powder. So glad I can use up the gross undrinkable hemp powder now! Submitted by:

While I didn't have the Protein Powder, I opted to use equal amount of Egg White, I tried baking them for 10 minutes and still too soft to do anything but Balls. Taste great though;) Submitted by:

Tried these with sprouted quinoa and didn't cook it pretty much everything was raw. The Hemp protein powder was a vanilla flavor from TJ's not sure if it was raw but it was pretty good. Might tweak it a lil by adding cranberries and cut back on the dates. Submitted by:

I just saw these and they sound intriguing. Sounds like it will be rather wet, judging by the comments that some have made. Wonder if a bit of dehydrating will help (which is done frequently in vegan style bars.). For @Legalgrl perhaps adding peanut or almond butters will add to protein count? Submitted by:

Having difficulty with the recipe. It will not dry out enough to make a bar or ball. I used Whey protein instead of Hemp and also used currants instead of dates. Did the substitutions make that much of a difference? or maybe, submitter can add instructions for curing? Submitted by:

Sorry. Tried to dry them out a little, tried them with some cocoa and crushed walnuts to thicken them up. Even put one in the fridge. Next I'll try some coconut. Maybe I went wrong with the hemp protein. Ok, retried with protein powder...better...son loves them Submitted by:

DEfinitely going to try these! I love quinoa, flax and protein, but have NOT found any affordable bars that have all these. Also, I hate paying too much or not getting what I want from the bars I can find in the store. Thanks! Submitted by:

Sounds like a great recipe. I would have to pass on the dates, too, as I am diabetic and have to control the sugar and carbs a little more. Thanks for the recipe!!! Submitted by:

These are lower in protein than I would have expected. Any suggestions to increase the protein count? Submitted by:
