Easy Super Seed chocolate Protein Bars. Vegan gluten-free Recipe

Happy Monday you all!

Hubbs is training to summit Mt Rainier this Summer(3 day round trip). He goes for long Hikes every weekend. The past few weeks, he has been bored the protein bars. He picks up varieties from here and there, but a lot of them are similar. Some of them also don’t work out well with the odd additives in them. He isn’t too fond of protein powders and smoothies(which anyway do not survive long hikes). Hence, these bars. 

These bars are full of seeds, can be made without nuts, are smaller servings and very liked by hubbs who was tired of eating date and nut based bars. Super easy to put together as well. 

Change them up to add some dates for volume and also so the bars can hold more seeds. Make them raw with coconut oil and cocoa or change them up to preference. 

We now have to figure out high calorie meals for him. Hikers and travelers, any tips will be appreciated!

Each 2 bite bar has 6 gms of protein.  If you make these larger like a 50 gm protein bar then About 12 gms protein per bar.

  3. Lea says:

    Hi Richa!
    Made these today and they were delicious! Its a bonus that they are far more nutritious than the average chocolate bar. I am going to add some cut up dried cherries to my next batch and reduce the maple syrup a titch… Not necessary though they are perfect as they are……Thanks so much

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      nice – like a black forest cake

  4. Melany says:

    Can I make these without oil?

    1. Vegan Richa Support says:

      yes, you can omit it

    Just made these – so good!

  6. Amanda says:

    Are the nutrition facts with or without the protein powder? Thanks!

  7. Shana says:

    I just made this for the second time this week. My first batch was crazy sticky and spread too thin. Still delicious.

    This time, I substituted 4 tbsp of basic Chia Seed pudding for the non-dairy milk, chia and half the maple syrup. This batch is a winner!!

    *Chia seed pudding is chia, non-dairy milk, vanilla and maple syrup.

    Thanks so much for posting this! I admit I modified this recipe a ton based on what I had on hand, but it was a fantastic jumping off point for me (basically I subbed oats & oat flour for all the seeds). Next time I may try to find some ways to cut back on the fat but I was pretty happy with the overall nutrition profile.
