No Bake-No Fat-No Sugar Protein Packed Bites with Good Hemp Protein Gym Shake powder

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

Britons are known to go to so many exotic places for their holiday, many around the world have curiosity. It seems incredible that so many are able to afford. Answer is very simple, because Britain's weather is nice but is unpredictable, many times, the summers are a total wash out and we don't have enough sunlight to enjoy it.  Also, Britons want to see and explore other countries, beautiful spots, food, culture, everything ! And they all work hard for full time, they spend their savings for these holiday deals abroad which are affordable for most of us, as pound is a much stronger currency.

Luckily this year Britain had plenty of sunshine throughout the whole summer, we are grateful for the clear and blue sky. Most of us flocked to beaches and headed outdoors to make most of the blistering heat. Me and my family took advantage too, we planned so many outings within the UK and enjoyed lots of different activites together. With plenty of beach visits, we also went to see many world heritage sites and did cliff walks too. Britain is truly blooming this summer !!!

An amazing view at Birling Gap - Lucky to see this !

Because of all of these outdoorsy visits, we're always on the lookout for tasty snacks that taste great but don't add to our already growing waistline!

I wanted to make something that satisfies those mid day cravings that you get for sweet food but without having to add too much fat or sugar into the recipe.

These bites that I have made are a great way to incorporate loads of goodness into your diet without even realising it! Loads of protein packed cashew nuts and vitamin and mineral loaded dates.  Because your adding super sweet dates ,raisins and cashews, there is no need to add any extra sugar or fat!




The recipe is unbelievably simple and it is so quick to make. The best part is it's all so easily done in the food processor! The other good thing is that you can experiment with the flavour of the bites. Simply add different flavoured protein powder! I added chocolate, but you can also add strawberry, orange - basically whatever you come across. I have been making variations of this recipe for years now, but this is the first time with hemp powder. My daughter used to take these date bites to school instead of chocolate bars!

You will need :-
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts ( can use any other kind too )
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 30 g good hemp protein gym shake powder ( chocolate flavour )
  • 1 tsp orange flavour hot chocolate powder for dusting ( optional )

Method :-
Place cashew nuts in the food processor, grind them in to coarse powder.
Add dates, protein powder and raisins, grind again till you see the mixture clumping together.
Transfer mixture into tray and set.
Dust orange flavour hot chocolate powder, after five minutes cut into desire shape.
Enjoy without any guilt..:)
