Fruity Hemp Protein Bars

Submitted by: ONESILLYME

Introduction

I use Hemp protein due to soy & egg allergies but any protein powder will work. Hemp adds fiber and Omega 3s but will turn your bars a little green. Apricots used for nutrition info but can substitute any mix of dried fruit you prefer, and can double the amount if you like. Can also substitute nuts to taste--pecans, sunflower seeds, etc. I use Hemp protein due to soy & egg allergies but any protein powder will work.
