Dry Mix

  • 1 cup chocolate protein powder or plain protein and substitute some cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup mixed nuts & seeds or a selection of your favourite nuts
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 25 g / 4 squares dark choc chopped

Wet Mix

  • 20 dates chopped
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp nut butter
  • 1/4 cup water gradually add more if needed


  • Line a small, square or rectangular dish with greaseproof paper.
  • Combine the dry mix in a blender/food processor and mix for 10 seconds. You want the dry mix to still be a little crunchy so don't blend it for too long.
  • Then, set the dry mix aside, and add the wet mix to the blender. Mix until everything is combined. If your blender isn't that powerful, I recommend chopping the dates so they blend a little easier. If the mixture is too stiff, gradually add a couple of tbsp of water to help liquify it. The dates may not completely smoothen out, but as long as everything is mixed well then it's fine.
  • Put the dry mix and wet mix together in a large bowl, and combine well. You may need to use your fingers.
  • Place the mix into your dish and spread it evenly. The mixture won't rise or change in size, so it's up to you how thick you want the bars to be. Use a flat cooking utensil, such as a turner, to gently press down the mix so it's evenly distributed and flat. Then, refrigerate for 2-3 hours, chop into bars, and enjoy!
