I feel like I am always making recipes with chocolate chips, flax seeds and wonderful tasting nuts. I wanted to change it up a bit and try something completely new! I recently bought a bag of Hemp seeds (Hemp Hearts), so I was inspired to make something new and yummy with these Hemp “Hearts!” After this purchase, Honey LOVE Hemp Hearts were created and I am truly in LOVE! Love is on my mind because of this week, but I am excited to have these around this summer too because the taste is so fresh! These are Gluten Free and Nut Free!
So what is so good about Hemp? It may spark a memory from your childhood about the Hemp bracelets that were once popular in the late 90s, but this Hemp is edible and healthy! Hemp seeds are high in protein and contain all 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on its own. It also has high amounts of fatty acids and fiber, not to mention that it is the richest source of polyunsaturated essential fatty acid.
½ cup of Sunbutter
1/3 cup of Raw Honey
½ cup of Hemp seeds
2/3 cup of coconut
½ cup of dried pineapple (or any dried fruit or chocolate chips you prefer)
Mix all ingredients and press into a dish or make balls or in this case I made 20 small hearts!
