Double Chocolate Chip Power Bars

A few weeks ago my lovely internet friend Karen tried out my Banana Hemp Brownies

Her verdict? Too gritty.

I was distraught. It’s part of my cook’s mantra that everyone, everywhere should enjoy brownies. Any brownies that fail to delight are a shameful blight on humanity.

as an added bonus, they make your kitchen smell amazing

Since Karen wasn’t impressed by the texture of hemp brownies, it was back to the drawing board for me and I decided to mix things up with the next batch (see? I love your feedback, it makes me a more experimental cook. Keep those comments coming!)

This time, the hemp seeds are out and a few tbsps of coconut flour are in. The flour disguises the hemp and makes these more like your standard, moist, baked brownies.

I’ve called them power bars because they are chockful of hemp protein and healthy fats courtesy of the coconut flour and sunflower seed butter.

They’ll keep you full for hours and give you that much-needed brownie hit.

Can’t wait to hear what you think of them.

Double Chocolate Chip Power Bars (makes 8)

  • 3/4 cup chocolate hemp protein powder (I used Manitoba Harvest)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour, sieved
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seed butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  1. Whisk together the eggs, sunflower seed butter, coconut oil and honey.
  2. Stir in the hemp powder and coconut flour.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips and spread the batter into a lined 8in x 8in brownie tin. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes until firm. Let cool before slicing into rectangles and serving.
