Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 small apple, cored
    1 c dates
    1/2 c cooked quinoa
    1/4 c almonds
    1/4 c flaxseed
    1/4 c hemp protein (or your favorite protein powder)
    2 t cinnamon
    1/2 t nutmeg

Directions

In a food processor, process all ingredients until desired texture is reached. If you prefer a uniformly smooth bar, process longer. If you would rather a bar with more crunch and texture, blend for less time.

Remove mixture from processor and either shape into balls or a brick. To roll into balls, simply pinch off a desired amount and roll between your hands. To roll into a brick, which you can cut into bars, places mixture on plastic wrap and flatten, covering with another layer of plastic wrap. Use a rolling pin to roll mixture to the desired thickness, then cut into bars.

Makes 12 1 3/4 ounce bars.

Number of Servings: 12

    Because it was mentioned that this recipe might be too moist I added a small amount of oat bran and it came out great. Delicious! My husband loves these. - 3/14/11

    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! - 9/13/11

    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 - 1/23/11

    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;) - 3/14/11
