Pumpkin & Sunflower Seed Protein Pow Bars (and a DISASTER)
These bars are really fun to make. They’re basically a twist on our basic Protein Pow bars! And a great example of how you can play around with your ingredients to create your own bars of Pow deliciousness.
3/4 cup (50g) Whey Protein Mix
1/4 cup (30g) ground pumpkin and sunflower seeds (see Note below for subs)
1/8 cup (25g) date syrup (or honey or agave)
1 tbsp (15g) pumpkin seed butter (or peanut butter)
1 big tbsp (20g) almond milk
2 squares (20g) 85% dark chocolate
1. Chuck all your ingredients in a bowl, barring the dark chocolate. Mix everything with a spoon until you get a dough (if it’s too dry, add more liquid; if it’s too wet, add more seeds or mix!) and then, using your hands, shape this dough into either 4 bars or 6 truffles!
2. Melt your dark chocolate and dunk the bars (or truffles) in there before placing the lot on a plate or tray lined with aluminium foil for a couple of hours. Done!
This is the sunflower and pumpkin seed mix that I used to make these bars. If you don’t have it, feel free to use another kind of ground-up nuts (like almonds, peanuts, or a combo of the two!)
