What are Hemp Hearts?
At the top part of the hemp plant you will find the hard hemp seed. This small seed “seeds” nutritiously delicious products like Hemp Hearts, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil. At the ‘heart’ of all our hemp foods is the Hemp Heart (aka raw shelled hemp seed). The flavor is very light and just as advertised:
These nutty little seeds are packed with protein and Omega 3s, and taste delicious sprinkled on just about everything, from salads to smoothies to oatmeal.
I’ve added a few teaspoons to my morning oatmeal and cereal and even made my own blueberry, flax and hemp heart loaf! They are very versatile for sure! If you are interested in more recipes, check out the Manitoba Harvenst Hemp Heart recipe site!
Getting Creative in the Kitchen with Hemp Hearts
This past weekend, I decided to create a new recipe involving Hemp Hearts and let’s just say it turned out great! Not only did it smell amazing while in the oven (salivating for it to cool to cut and eat), but tasted delish!
- 3 tsp Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts
- 1 package blueberry muffin mix (follow directions on the box, mine are below)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tsp ground flax meal
- greased loaf pan or muffin tins
Combine wet ingredients (milk and egg), then add the dry ingredients (hemp hearts, muffin mix and flax meal), and mix together until combined. The dough should be a bit lumpy. Pour into loaf pan or muffin tins and cook according to directions on the box (may vary depending on mix). Once done baking (check with toothpick to make sure it comes out clean), let it cool for 20min, then cut and enjoy!
