Hemp and Fruit Bars- vegan, raw

Hemp and fruit bars- every bit as good as those really expensive bars you get in health food shops!  The glossiness is the hemp oil from the seeds.
Those of you who follow this blog will know that we recently bought a large amount of organic shelled hemp seeds; they are great in sweet and savoury dishes, and a super-healthy addition to a recipe, being full of omega oils and suchlike. For more hemp recipes, look here, here, here and here. Personally, I quite like the slight earthiness of hemp, but if you don't, adding something like natural orange extract to this recipe would add a bit of extra zing. You will need a decent food processor to make these, and they are really quick and easy to prepare. This recipe makes 6 large bars (probably a bit big) or 12 balls.


250g shelled hemp seeds
150g lexia raisins
8x semidried dates, pitted
1 tab light carob powder

  • Whizz up the raisins and dates into a paste in your food processor.
  • Add the hemp and mix again until it forms a mass.
  • Remove and shape into balls/ use a loaf tin to mould .
  • Refrigerate for at least half an hour
  • Remove and serve. 
  • Store in the fridge.
