Sweet Potato Hemp Bars & Giveaway

I first discovered hemp hearts a few months, I know late to the party! My extent of use has been throwing on salads or in my coconut yogurt for a little extra protein. I decided to get adventurous when I was given a bag to try from Manitoba Harvest and bake with them.

Benefits of Hemp HeartsPlant Based Protein - 10g per tablespoonHigh Fiber - 1g per tablespoonOmega 3 Fatty AcidsLots of Vitamins - Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin B, Manganese, Zinc and Calcium 
They sound perfect for a vegetarian runner! I'm always looking for ways to increase protein, iron and calcium. Plus Omega 3s are great for recovery,



Sweet Potato Bars
1 cup mashed sweet potato (could do pumpkin)
1 banana mashed
1 cup dates soaked
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup hemp hearts
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Put first four ingredients in food processor and puree until smooth. Add remaining ingredients until mixed. Pour into prepared greased baking dish and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. 

Bars will be soft and chewy. Store in fridge to make last longer.

Guess what?! One of my readers will win their own bag of Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest!


I was given the product to review but all opinions are my own.
