Happy Hemp Bars (Yield: 12 Bars)

Ingredients:

1  cup Quick-Cooking Rolled Oats
1  cup Hemp Hearts
1/2  cup Dried Cherries
1/2 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Unsweetened Flake or Shredded Coconut
2 Tbsp Flaxseed Meal
1/2 cup Tahini
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 tsp Fine Sea Salt
1/4 cup Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Directions:
  1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  3. Place hemp hearts, cherries, chocolate chips, coconut and flaxseed meal in a food processor. Process using on/off pulses, until the mixture is finely chopped (but not a paste). Add the tahini using on/off pulses until just combined. Mix in toasted pumpkin seed.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Place a large piece of parchment paper, wax paper or plastic wrap (coated with cooking spray) atop the bar mixture and use it to spread and flatten the mixture evenly in the pan. Discard the paper or plastic.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 24 minutes or until golden brown at the edges. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely in the pan.
  6. Using the liner, lift the mixture from the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 12 bars.
