Fava Bean Snack Bars

Fava Bean Snack Bars


I fell in love with the Sweet and Salty Peanut Snack Bars from last week so I had to make a new version! This option is nut free, lower in fat and has a touch more protein. They’re super crunchy and with a little added sea salt they’re the perfect sweet and salty snack you crave!

Recipe makes 6 snacking bars

Macros per bar:

200 cals - 4g fat - 33g carbs - 8g protein 


Recipe notes:

I used Three Farmers Sea Salt Fava Beans for a pre-roasted, high protein addition. They also have roasted chickpeas that would be a great substitute! If you do sub chickpeas keep in mind the macros will vary.

When I posted the Salty Peanut Bars a few of you asked me if maple syrup would work in place of the brown rice syrup. I still haven't tested it, but I imagine it would. The goal is to bake the bars low and long so the sugar hardens so they're bars not granola. When I get some maple syrup I will update you!

The brown rice syrup I used is Lundberg Farms Organic Brown Rice Syrup.

Cereal is the Nature's Path Crispy Rice Cereal.



1 cup roasted fava beans 

¼ cup hemp hearts

1 cup rice cereal 

¼ cup + 2 tbsp brown rice syrup


Preheat the oven to 250 F.

Prepare a loaf pan with parchment paper, set aside.

Add everything to a bowl.

Oil your hand or a spatula and mix everything together really well. Make sure the brown rice syrup is mixed thoroughly.

Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and press down to create a dense bar.

Top with flaky sea salt if desired. (Recommended for that sweet and salty flavour!).

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Allow to cool completely before slicing into 6 bars.
