Are these seed Bars a good high protein snack?

Yes! Seeds are a great source of plant-based protein. Not only that, but they are packed with nutrients!

Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, and copper and contain 8g protein per serving.

Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamins E & B6, magnesium, selenium, manganese, and copper and contain 6g protein per serving.

Sesame seeds are a great source of fiber, magnesium, manganese, and zinc and contain 5g protein per serving.

How to make chocolate seed Bars

Ingredients:

  • Sunflower seeds: You’ll want to use raw sunflower seeds as they will get roasted while in the oven! It’s okay if they are salted, just omit the salt in the recipe!
  • Pumpkin seeds: Same as above, you’ll want to go with raw pumpkin seeds!
  • Maple syrup or honey: Honey offers extra nutrients to the recipe but I personally prefer the flavor of pure maple syrup. Either are great, though!
  • Sea salt, vanilla & Cinnamon: The cinnamon is optional but I love the depth of flavor it adds! And it’s great for you 😉
  • Chocolate: I like to use Hu Kitchen chocolate as it’s made with simple ingredients and refined sugar free! You can use my code “danishealthyeats” for a discount!

Instructions:

  • Mix together all of the seed bite ingredinets in a bowl.
  • Divide amongst a mini or standard muffin tin. Bake!
  • Let cool. Then dip in chocolate. Place in the freezer for a bit, then store!

FAQ’s

  • How to store leftover bites: Store leftover bites in an air-tight container in the freezer. They are perfectly crunchy straight from the freezer, but you can also let them sit out at room temperature for a few minutes before eating if you’d like.
  • Can I use different nuts and seeds? Sure! I think any nut would work great.
  • Are these low sugar? Depending on the chocolate you use, yes! Theres only a few tablespoons of sweetener in the entire recipe!

Ingredients
  

Seed bars

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • good pinch sea salt

Optional mix-ins (but so good!)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon and/or cardamom
  • small handful of goji berries or dried fruit

For coating

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, mix together the seeds, maple syrup, vanilla, & sea salt until well combined.
  • You can use a mini muffin tin or standard sized muffin tin (I recommend using a silicone one for easy removal or be sure to use liners). Divide the seed mixture amongst the tin.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until they are golden. Remove from the oven and let cool a few minutes. Once the pan is cool to touch, place the pan in the fridge or frezer for an hour or so. This will help make them easier to remove and easier to dip in the chocolate.
  • In a medium sized bowl, add the chocolate chips. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring well between each one, until the chocolate is completely smooth.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Dip each bite into the chocolate and place on the cookie sheet. Alternatively, you could also just drizzle the chocolate over top. Place in the fridge or freezer for 10-15 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden before storing them in an air-tight container.
  • I like to keep these in the freezer and let them sit out for a minute or two before enjoying. They stay extra crispy!

    1. Hi Liz! I’m not sure if you might be new to my blog, but I battled an eating disorder for many years and no a lot of my community has struggled with disordered relationships with food. Therefore, I choose to keep it out just to be mindful of those people and to not trigger them. I hope you can understand! Nutritional facts are never accurate anyway, as different brands of products contain different nutritional profiles so I always recommend those who want that info, to simply plug the recipe into my fitness pal with the brands you use for accurate numbers! It’s super easy!

      I have made few times. I added pieces of dates, pistachios, cashews, and hemp seeds. Amazing recipe! Thank you 😊
