OK internet, help me out here:
I've been looking for a recipe for healthy snack bars, to replace store bought "chewy" bars. The bars can't contain nuts or peanuts.
My nutritionist sent me a recipe for Chocolate Date Protein bars. I made the bars, following the recipe exactly and ended up with a very, very tasty paste - too sticky to be rolled into balls, let alone made into bars.
She's away indefinitely and I can't find a comparable recipe online. Can someone figure out how to give these bars more integrity?
I used ground hemp. Could that be the problem? Is it possible to buy whole seeds? Would that help?
I don't want to post someone's recipe online but you soak the dates and then blend them with the cocoa and sweetener and then add the hemp seeds for a few seconds at the end. There's no cooking - you just chill it in the fridge.
I'm also in the market for healthy and nut-free snack bar recipes. Any thoughts there would be appreciated as well.
