Today we made ‘MEP101’–another ‘soft & datey’ protein bar recipe named and created by one of our customers.
The ‘soft & datey’ options allows you to chose whether you want a higher or lower percentage of dates, and in this case the ‘less datey’ options was selected.
In addition to dates, organic cashew butter and organic coconut flour were the only other ‘base’ ingredients in this simple 10 ingredient recipe.
Under the ‘flavor & texture enhancers’ category, chia powder was selected. This popular ingredient helps boost omega 3 fatty acids and fiber content of your bar.
Hemp hearts and pumpkin seeds got the nod under the ‘nuts & seeds’ section. Hemp hearts are high in omega 3’s, and pumpkin seeds have high levels of zinc so they both help beef up nutrition levels.
To add additional flavor and sweetness, goji berries and blueberries were both used.
To finish ‘MEP101’ off, liquid vanilla extract and organic maca root powder were the final ingredient selections.
