Chocolate hemp protein bars

Get your daily protein fix in the chocolatiest way possible.

Prep time10min
Total time3h 10min


  • 100g pitted Medjool dates
  • 180g smooth peanut butter or almond butter
  • 60g coconut oil, melted
  • 150g chocolate or chocolate peanut plant based protein powder*
  • 20g raw cacao or cocoa powder
  • 50g Linwoods Hemp Seeds
  • 50g Linwoods Whole Chia Seeds
  • 50g dark chocolate, melted (for topping)


  1. Blend the Medjool dates and the melted coconut oil in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Add the protein powder and cacao powder and blend to form a thick paste.
  3. Add the seeds and pulse to combine.
  4. Line a 2lb standard loaf tin with baking paper.
  5. Transfer the bar mixture to the tin and leave to set in the fridge for 3 hours (or overnight). If you're short on time, you could also put it in the freezer for an hour.
  6. Slice into 7-8 bars and drizzle with melted chocolate.
  7. Store in the fridge for up to two weeks in a sealed container, or freeze for up to one month.

Recipe Notes

*It’s best to use a chocolate/chocolate peanut plant-based protein powder that contains a mixture of different plant proteins. 100% rice protein will be too chalky, whereas 100% pea protein will dry the mixture out. The one we used is a mixture of hemp, peanut, rice, pumpkin and sunflower seed protein.

  • That sounds lovely Jessica, just a quick question. The recipe calls for peanut or almond butter, at which point do you add it?

    • Whoops, well spotted Natali! I’ll have to get this updated 😳 the peanut/almond butter should go in at the same time as the protein powder and cacao powder 😊
