If you eat a plant-based diet, you've heard the popular (and annoying!) question "How do you get enough protein?" at least once. Protein tends to be associated with animal products, but there are plenty of vegan protein sources out there.
Sunflower, hemp, and pumpkin seeds are all rich in protein (among other awesome benefits you can read about in the sources at the bottom of the page). With these bars, you get to combine plant-based protein, chocolate, and coffee! This makes these bars ideal for a midday or to-go snack or even a quick breakfast for those of us who're always running late in the mornings.
Ingredients (makes 10 small bars):
You can store the bars in an air-tight container in the fridge for approx. a week or freeze for later use.
