Recipe Directions

With a fork, mash the dates, honey, and agave into a rich, thick paste in a large mixing bowl.
Add remaining ingredients, saving the dehydrated walnuts and gojis for last. Stir really well with each ingredient being added.
Spread onto perforated sheet of some sort (I just used my dehyrator tray) into four equal bars or eight equal squares and leave on the counter, covered, for 3-4 hours to dry. It could also be done in the sun if you live in SoCal (unlike me… argg…). Eat any time you need a boost of energy. These are perfect for runners, as the millet and dates provide high-quality carbs while the protein and fiber content stabilize glycogen levels.

Intheraw13's Thoughts

Hemp might just be my favorite food on the planet. I am repeatedly amazed by its flavor and nutritional profile, and I truly cannot get enough of it. As a growing teenager and an avid runner, the high-calorie, nutrient-dense qualities of this bar, as well as it’s simplicity to make, are why this is probably my favorite raw recipe that I have created. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have, especially since it’s my first electricity-free recipe!

Millet will sprout, but I wouldn't worry about it for this recipe. A good 2-day soak ought to be good enough...

Wow, these look like they would keep you going all day. Does millet sprout like buckwheat? I might go ahead and dehydrate them completely for travel.

Thanks for the great enthusiasm. I'm glad I could open you up to possibly my favorite grain: millet. My reason: birds fly, birds eat millet, therefore lots of millet will make you fly! (figuratively speaking :)

I completely agree with you about hemp!! I love love love it. I make something very similar to this, but with out the millet. Buckwheat and me don't get along - so I'm going to try millet pops :) These are especially great when traveling. I made a whole tupperware full last weekend when I had to venture to South Carolina for a family reunion - they saved me from a weekend of picking thru chemical ladden iceberg lettuce and lemon wedges!
