Pumpkin Pie Protein Bars

February 7, 2016

  • 1 cup pitted dates

  • ½ cup raw cashews

  • 2 Tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds

  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut

  • ⅓ cup vanilla or pumpkin protein powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • ¼ cup pure pumpkin puree

 

  • Garnish with:

  • 2 tablespoons toasted coconut flakes

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  You can leave the mixture a little chunky if you'd like as well!

  2. In an 8x8 baking pan, place parchment paper on the bottom.

  3. Add in the energy bar batter from the food processor - it will be quite sticky.

  4. Press down the mixture into a pan and use the back of a wet spoon to smooth the top.

  5. Garnish with coconut flakes and chopped pecans, press these firmly into the bar mixture.

  6. Freeze for 2-3 hours or until solid, and cut into 8 bars.

  7. Store in the fridge or freezer.

Enjoy!
