Almond, Honey and Hemp Heart Cookies Recipe + a Contest & GIVEAWAY! {ENDED}


If you’ve been hanging around the healthy living scene long enough, you should know that hemp is a super plant that is used for a variety of different things.  Not only is it used to produce clothing, paper and fuel but it is also edible.  The seed from the hemp plant provides food such as hemp oil and powder as well as hemp seeds which can be used in a handful of delicious and nutritious ways. Manitoba Harvest

 Manitoba Harvest, based out of Canada, is largest manufacturer and seller of hemp foods in the world and they’re totally passionate about it.  All of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Food products are Non-GMO Project Verified, they’ve earned the “gold stamp” in food quality and live by the mission of quality from “shell to shelf”.  Manitoba’s sole focus is on hemp foods, producing hemp oil, hemp protein powder and tasty little sprinkles of superfood goodness called hemp heartsHemp Hearts
 Hemp hearts are nutritious little nuggets that offer 10 grams of plant protein and 10 grams of Omegas in every 30 gram serving! They contain more protein and omegas but less carbs than both chia and flax and are extremely versatile, not to mention tasty! While I have been a long time user of Manitoba’s Hemp Hearts, I was recently given the opportunity through my relationship with #SweatPink to create and share a recipe with you.  As I mentioned, hemp hearts are versatile.  They have a subtle nutty flavor and are great on salads, on top of yogurt, smoothies or soup or you can get fancy and use them to crust fish or chicken. The possibilities are endless really, you can check out all of Manitoba’s hemp recipes here.
 
Hemp hearts are also great in desserts or cookies and I choose to use them to make these scrumptious Almond, Honey & Hemp Heart cookies which are not only gluten free, but grain free too!
