Packed with protein and healthy fats, these filling vegan pumpkin hemp seed bars don't even need to be baked. As a delicious snack between meals, they give you the energy boost you need for any activity throughout the day. The list of ingredients is similar to that for the granola recipe:

1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup Signature Products Hemp Seeds
½ cup other seeds, e.g. chia seeds, sunflower seeds etc.
1 pinch turmeric and cinnamon
¼ cup grated coconut
¼ cup nut or seed butter
½ cup natural apple syrup
1 tbsp coconut or avocado oil

Combine all the seeds with the spices and then mix thoroughly with the coconut flakes, the syrup, the oil and the butter. Lay out the finished mass in a baking pan and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. You can store the finished bars in the refrigerator so that they remain firm.

Creamy pumpkin and hemp seed butter

This creamy, tender, slightly bitter pumpkin and hemp seed butter is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to the content of unsaturated fatty acids and essential micronutrients such as zinc. Pumpkin seeds amplify the incredible protein power of hemp seeds and taste even more delicious when made into a thick, luscious butter. You can spread them over your bread or add them to a warm bowl of oatmeal. The best part is that you only need three ingredients!

1 ½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup shelled hemp seeds
2 tbsp avocado oil

You can simply put the seeds in a food processor and blend until a smooth butter forms. With the engine running, drizzle in the oil until the mixture reaches a paste-like consistency. Now you have to wait for the oils of the seeds to be released under the heat of the machine. After about 20 minutes of waiting you have your finished butter, which can be transferred to a glass jar and stored in the fridge for up to a month.

Pumpkin Hemp Muffins

Pumpkin Hemp Muffins are not only deliciously moist and flavorful, they're also low in sugar and loaded with essential nutrients. This deliciously spiced pastry has a short preparation time of only about 20 minutes and is also very tender and light, making it a good filling snack to take away. The applesauce acts as a binder in the recipe and is the only sweetener used. It should support the natural sweet taste of the pumpkin. You can also leave out the coconut or avocado oil, which won't greatly affect the texture of the muffins. Optionally, ginger, cinnamon and cloves can be added to the dough to bring out its spicy taste.

The ingredient list for about twenty little muffins is simple and consists of vegan products that you probably already have at home:

1 cup pureed pumpkin
½ cup oatmeal
2 cups Almont Flour
½ cup (plant-based) milk
¼ cup Signature Products hulled hemp seeds
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
2 squeezed lemons
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup coconut or avocado oil (optional)
½ teaspoon ginger, cinnamon, cloves, ground (optional)

After you have turned the oven on to 350 to preheat and have the muffin cases ready, let the oatmeal soak in the milk of your choice for at least ten minutes. Meanwhile, you can mix the Almond Flour with the salt, lemon juice, and hemp seeds, and optionally add the cloves, ginger, and cinnamon. You can mix the pureed pumpkin with the apple sauce, the oil and the soaked oatmeal in another container. The mixture can then be added to the bowl with the flour. Mix until a strong, moist dough forms. You can put this in the muffin tins until the batter is almost on top and let it rise in the oven for about 30 minutes until the muffins are set.

This Homemade Pumpkin Hemp Seed Granola is super quick and easy to make and quickly becomes addictive with its crunchy texture and deliciously sweet, natural flavor. You can sprinkle it over your morning oatmeal, salad, or yogurt as you like. Neither refined sugar nor rapeseed oil is used: all you need to prepare it is a combination of a large amount of grain, nuts, pumpkin, hemp and other healthy seeds, over which warm (apple) syrup is poured.

We shared a recipe for Hemp Seed Granola in a previous post, but with this fall recipe, you now have the opportunity to give the granola a seasonal icing on the cake with pumpkin seeds.

3 cups of oatmeal
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup Signature Products Hemp Seeds
1 cup more seeds, e.g. chia seeds, sunflower seeds etc.
1 cup almonds, walnuts, and/or hazelnuts
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup natural apple syrup
¼ cup coconut or avocado oil (optional)
¼ cup honey (optional)

First, preheat the oven to 175. Next, combine all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl and the apple syrup with the honey and oil in a separate bowl. You can then pour it directly over your grain-seed mixture and mix gently until the oil is evenly distributed. Finally, you can spread the raw muesli on a large baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes until it takes on a nice golden brown colour. You can store the finished granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a few months.

You don't need any grains, eggs, milk or sugar to make this delicious Hemp Pumpkin Seed Bread because it's completely plant-based.

½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup of hemp seeds
½ cup almond flour
Two squeezed lemons or 1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ cup coconut or avocado oil
¾ cup of water

Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and mix together all the dry and wet ingredients separately before combining. Pour the bread mixture into the prepared loaf pan and spread evenly. Optionally, you can let the bread rest for a few hours to allow the seeds to absorb the water. After that, you can bake it in the oven for 1 hour.

Let the bread sit for 5 minutes to allow the psyllium to absorb the water, then place in the center of the oven to bake for 1 hour, until firm and crusting on top. Cool at room temperature.
