The powerful nutrition of hemp is undeniable. If you’re looking for an easy way to get hemp into your diet on the go you’re probably wondering, what are hemp protein bars?
Hemp protein bars are a convenient on-the-go option for getting the protein you need. Hummingbars are made with hemp seeds and other all-natural ingredients including raw honey. These plant-based protein bars pack powerful nutrition into a healthy and delicious snack.
When it comes to nutrition these pocket-sized snacks have everything you could look for. Seriously they contain everything from protein, omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and iron.
It’s understandable that you’d want to know how a protein bar can give you so much, so let’s go over all the benefits. Find out exactly how a protein bar that has the ability to fuel your muscles can improve your health at the same time.
What are hemp protein bars?
Hemp protein bars are a healthy snack that contains hemp hearts. The hulled hemp seeds inside provide all the essential amino acids your body needs in one bar. In other words, a hummingbar is the only protein bar on the market that can give you the essentials you can only get with food, along with the daily values of eight vitamins and minerals.
Hemp protein bars are a handheld, all-natural snack that’s packed with both great taste and great nutrition. They are loaded with essential plant-based proteins and omega fatty acids to deliver excellent nutrition on the go.
Our snack bars start with American-grown hemp hearts and raw USA honey. Between these two ingredients, you’ve got one of the best combinations on Earth for health. They work together to improve heart, brain, and immune health in a taste that totally hits the spot!
Take a look at our Almond & Chocolate hummingbar, for example. This bar alone offers 11 grams of protein per bar, with only seven ingredients you can name. Each ingredient is carefully chosen to ensure our bars are certified raw, organic, and clean.
Compared with any typical protein bar in the grocery store, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bar whose ingredients are certified for all your needs. Most protein bars will have ingredients you can’t even pronounce, so how good for you can they really be?
Our hummingbars are unique. We believe in letting the simple ingredients from nature do the job of fueling your body.
Are hemp bars good for you?
Hemp bars are good for you in every way. The nutrient-dense bar gives you a quick option for getting all your amino acids, the ideal balance of omega fatty acids, and naturally occurring B vitamins. All of these vitamins and minerals are good for heart health, building muscles, hair skin and nails, and your digestive system.
What really makes hemp bars so good for you are the fact that no vitamins or minerals are added. Our ingredients are made from real food and not chemicals. The B vitamins, iron, zinc, and manganese are all naturally occurring in the American grown hemp in each bar.
You can feel good knowing that everything you’re eating in our hemp protein bars came straight from nature. No need to mess with Mother Nature, you can’t really go wrong eating natural ingredients with minimal processing.
Looking closely, you’ll see that some of the “bragging rights” that these hemp bars offer are nothing that we did. Nature took care of it on her own!
The fact is
- hemp hearts contain the ideal ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids
- hemp hearts are a superfood and contain all 21 amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids your body requires but can’t make on its own
- vitamins and minerals that naturally occur in hemp and don’t need to be added
- hemp offers 10x more iron than spinach, more protein than chicken, and cleaner omega fatty acids than even the best supplements
And this list doesn’t even take into account all the full-body benefits hemp provides. That’s why we LOVE hemp as our first ingredient in everything we make!
Powerful nutrition in hummingbars
The powerful nutrition in Humming Hemp hummingbars is well-balanced and a perfect match for the body’s needs. The ideal omega ratio helps prevent inflammation and relieve pain, while the complete set of amino acids helps your body rebuild muscle with ease.
As you can see these Humming Hemp hummingbars are nothing to laugh at! Although they do make for a great feature when you’re laughing around a campfire with friends, in our Gourmet S’mores recipe!
In all seriousness, everyone looks for a magic pill for health when all you need is to use what nature gave us. These snack bars are made with a superfood that offers health improvements in every bite. The powerful nutrition in each bar starts with hemp but doesn’t end there.
Humming Hemp hearts offer an incredible nutritional profile, which is why they’re the first ingredient in every hummingbar we make.
Hemp products are considered “nature’s perfect ratio” of fatty acids. It matches what the body needs for keeping itself in top shape, on a cellular level. After all fatty acids and protein are naturally occurring in the body. We just need to replenish our supplies.
Our fatty acids play a role in almost everything in the body. They help reduce your risk of cardiovascular diseases, improve brain health, and help reduce the risk of some cancers. If one ingredient can help with that much, with one of its nutritional components, that is some seriously powerful nutrition!
But besides the fatty acid profile, hemp products are one of a small group of foods that offer all 21 amino acids. Your body uses amino acids to build your DNA, which is pretty important since your genes control every aspect of you!
Where the hemp products really shine is being in the elite group of foods that contain all nine of the essential amino acids. These nine “building blocks” that your body needs are unique — they are the only ones your body cannot make on its own. Being able to get these in your diet is critical to keep your cells working in top form.
Raw USA Honey
Raw honey is another superfood as well as a limited whole food. This means that it’s harvested and used as-is with little to no processing, it’s simply extracted from the beehives.
What this means for you, in terms of the nutritional benefits of raw honey, is an INCREDIBLE source of:
- Antioxidants, which keep your cells working, reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease, and slows the signs of aging.
- Immune boosting and illness preventing properties, from the natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. This keeps the germs at bay before your body ever needs to fight them.
- Antiseptic properties, honey contains a naturally-occurring form of hydrogen peroxide, that can help clean surface wounds.
- Digestive improvements. Between the antimicrobial action and being a prebiotic, honey is good for helping keep your digestive system running smoothly.
All of these properties help make your overall health better on top of the benefits of hemp.
Other Nutrient-Dense Ingredients
We choose our ingredients thoughtfully, and only include the most powerful (and tasty) ingredients in each of our hummingbars!
Our bars boast only 4-9 ingredients per bar, depending on flavor. But you’ll never miss out on hemp hearts and raw honey in any of them! So it’s worth taking the time to go over each ingredient our hummingbars have to offer.
Honey & Cinnamon hummingbar
Besides the great hemp heart and raw honey base that all our bars contain, our Honey & Cinnamon bars feature cinnamon as a main ingredient.
Cinnamon is beneficial because it’s been shown to reduce blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. The antioxidants in cinnamon help protect your body from damage by free radicals. Cinnamon also helps reduce inflammation, protect neurons from damage, and may even protect against some cancers. If that’s not enough, it also helps fight germs and viruses!
We love the idea that you can both protect AND improve your body with every bite you take.
Lavender Pistachio & Blueberry hummingbar
You can tell by the name that pistachios, lavender flowers, and blueberries are big ingredients in our Lavender Pistachio & Blueberry hummingbar. Most people know that lavender is good for reducing stress and relieving anxiety.
In addition lavender can:
- improve depression and dementia
- reduce pain
- provide antibacterial and antifungal properties
- improve asthma
- impact skin issues
- reduce blood pressure
- improve sleep
Your world may be seriously improved with more lavender in your life.
We’re not done with this bar, the pistachios inside offer an excellent source of protein and other nutrition that improves eye, gut, and heart health. The high fiber content may also reduce the risk of colon cancer, among others.
And lastly, the blueberries certainly are not the least on this ingredients list. Blueberries are also a superfood, high in antioxidants, they reduce the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, fight cancer (not just help prevent it), and improve digestive health. Combining hemp hearts and blueberries offers your body what it needs to kick your health up a notch!
Almond & Chocolate hummingbar
You can never have too much chocolate when it comes to taste. But the almonds, cashews, and dark chocolate in this Almond & Chocolate hummingbar also provide ample health benefits!
Almonds offer ample protein and fiber, plus half your day’s goal for vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps prevent cell damage and reduces the effects of aging. The tree nut also offers other nutrients, such as calcium, iron, and potassium.
The vitamins and nutrients from almonds offer a multitude of benefits including:
- reduced inflammation
- better blood flow
- protection for your brain and nervous system
- heart health
- better weight regulation
- better skin
You’ll also get a boost of prebiotics from almonds, which helps balance your gut biome for better digestive health.
Cashews are a drupe that is often classified as a tree nut. This tasty seed offers a great source of vitamin K, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, and iron. They may also improve diabetes, reduce blood pressure, and help keep your skin youthful!
Dark chocolate is more than just a delicious treat. While chocolate is often thought of as a sugary dessert, the cacao in dark chocolate is rich in minerals. Dark chocolate contains powerful antioxidants for improved heart health.
Dark chocolate can also help decrease “bad” cholesterol levels (LDL) and increase “good” cholesterol (HDL). It also reduces insulin resistance, which can worsen diabetes and cause weight gain.
Many people know chocolate is good for lifting your mood, but it does even more than that. Dark chocolate is also good for your brain function and may help prevent conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
The high iron content in dark chocolate is excellent for both body and mind. Good iron levels help improve oxygen levels in your body and improve immune function.
Pumpkin Seed & Spice hummingbar
The pumpkin seed & spice hummingbar gives your body a boost with the powerful ingredients of pumpkin. Pumpkin seeds are an incredibly good source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids, similar to hemp hearts. Proving once again that plant-based nutrition are the best sources of your body’s macro and micronutrients.
Pumpkins seeds also offer antioxidants, can boost your immune function, and are great overall for mood regulation. The thought alone of pumpkin spice has been known to boost the moods of moms everywhere in coffee shops.
Pumpkin spice is not something that typically makes people think “health food,” but you’d be surprised! Pumpkin spice is a mix of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg.
As you already know cinnamon is a powerhouse, but nutmeg offers B vitamins. The spice is also antibacterial, is good for digestion and can help relieve chronic pain. In fact many spices are also used medicinally because of the ability to relieve pain.
The minerals in spices are what cause the disease preventing properties. Ginger contains iron, potassium, and zinc and is often used to help with nausea. It’s less known for its ability to be anti inflammatory, reduce cholesterol, and protect brain cells. The anti inflammatory spice plays a role in reducing chronic pain and heart disease risk.
The last addition to pumpkin spice are cloves which are high in antioxidants and are excellent for your bone health, stomach lining, and your liver. This spice also offers antioxidants, and helps reduce blood sugar levels.
Seed & Date hummingbar

More reasons we’re humming about hummingbars
After going over each ingredient in hummingbars you can see that a lot of nutrition is packed into a small bite. But there’s even more reasons why we’re humming about hummingbars.
- Is a complete plant-based protein
- Has omega fatty acids
- Is convenient
- Works for special diets
- Is delicious and nutritious
There is so much goodness in our Humming Hemp hummingbars, it’s hard to pick the best aspect. But let’s dive in, one bite at a time!
Complete plant-based protein
Hemp protein is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids. You have everything you need in one place, even without the added benefits of the other protein sources in our bars that contain ingredients like chia or pumpkin seeds.
Hemp as a protein source actually soars above many other plant protein sources. Hemp, in particular, is an especially CLEAN protein. Since no herbicides or pesticides are used on the crop, it actually regenerates the soil. We as moms only want the best and cleanest for our children.
The fact that hemp also offers 11-12 grams of complete plant-based protein in each serving, makes it stand out above the rest even more. Many other plant-based protein options tend to fall short on the 9 essential amino acids. This means you’re only getting some of those building blocks your body needs, not all.
Here is how some common plant-based proteins stack up:
- Hemp protein: contains all 21 amino acids (including the 9 essential).
- Pea protein: contains all the essential amino acids, but is low on methionine.
- Rice protein: is not a complete protein, contains some but not all essential amino acids.
- Chia protein: contains 18 amino acids, including all 9 essentials.
Now think of the beauty of hemp seeds and chia seeds together and you’ll be humming about all the protein in our hummingbars too.
Hemp has just as many omega fatty acids as it does protein. Just like hemp offers all the essential amino acids it offers all the essential omegas as well.
Having the perfect balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids makes getting the nutrition you need easier. The reason this is considered ideal is because Americans’ diets of omega fatty acids are out of balance. We tend to get much more omega-6 than we need and not enough omega-3.
Eating hemp helps get you back on balance without the fishy taste of supplements that can contain mercury.
The benefits of an ideal omega ratio are:
- Decreased inflammation
- Cardiovascular health
- Improved digestion
- Better skin
- Possible relief from arthritis, PMS, asthma, and more
To be able to get all the omega fatty acids you need and stay in balance by snacking is seriously a dream come true!
We live in an age where everyone is on the go, all the time. From work schedules to busy kids to everything else, healthier options for snacks matter!
Sending your kids to school or sports practice with a granola bar or even junk foods is convenient, sure. But that’s not good for making sure they’re getting excellent nutrition in every bite they take.
The thing that makes these snacks SO convenient is the fact that hemp is shelf stable. There is no need to cook hemp before consuming, so these bars are ready to go when you are! It’s truly portable nutrition at it’s finest.
You get balanced macro and micro nutrition anytime, anywhere, without cooking a huge meal.
Works for several special diets
The best part about hummingbars are that they work for your diet, no matter which one you’re on. The stress of reading another label becomes a little easier when you see only a few natural ingredients.
Humming Hemp hummingbars are allergy friendly as most don’t contain any of the top 8 allergens. And an allergy to hemp is rare, so there’s little to be concerned about!
Humming Hemp makes a great complement to just about any diet you’re following. Hemp protein bars work for Keto, Paleo, Whole30, or a vegetarian diet, and are safe for pregnancy.
Hemp is also certified:
- Plant-based (plant allergies are less common)
Hemp is even easily digestible and good for ulcerative colitis.
As delicious as it is nutritious
Nutrition aside, our Humming Hemp hummingbars offer a taste that is pretty much unparalleled. Hemp itself tastes like a sunflower seed and a pine nut had a super baby. Raw honey is soooo yummy and healthy, with enough sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth, but without being overpowering.
