I’m excited to review a new product with you today. Something I’ve never tried before! Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts. If you know me, you know I have a love for seeds and nuts, (I’m practically addicted to nut butters) so when I was given an opportunity to review these little guys, I SAID YES!
Hemp Hearts are raw shelled hemp seeds. Upon tasting them, they reminded me of sunflower seeds. YUM! Slightly soft with a nutty flavor. I immediately imagined them in a smoothie or topping warm oatmeal. Super easy to use, you can sprinkle them on pretty much any meal.
I read the label and was shocked by how much nutritious goodness Hemp Hearts provide. Check it out:
- 10 grams of Protein per 30 gram serving
- 10 grams of Omegas 3 & 6
- Lower in carbs than Chia and Flax seeds
- Vegan and Non-GMO (totally diet friendly, yaaaaay)
Inspired, I set out to incorporate these Hemp Hearts into a recipe of my own.
Cranberry Hemp Bread..oooooh, aaaaaaaaah
I not only used the seeds to top this sweet bread but I added some to the inside. Boom, packed with nutrition!
This Cranberry Hemp Bread reminds me of the consistency of an Irish Soda Bread, which is perfect for March. Sweetness from the cranberries and a nuttiness from the Hemp seeds. Awesome! Ready for the best part? One lucky reader will get there own bag to try. Enter below to win!
