These delicious, nutrient-dense chocolate brownies include an abundant portion of hemp seed hearts–which are high in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids,
and about 35% protein.
Chocolate Hemp Heart Cakes
- 1 c Hemp Hearts
- 1/2 c Cacao or Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 c Almond Flour or Coconut Flour
- 1/4 c Kidsweet™
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla (or Rose water, almond or orange extract, strong coffee, or other flavor of your choice, to taste)
- 1/2 c coconut oil melted
- 4 Large eggs
- 1/4 c Almond Milk (more if using coconut flour)
Mix all ingredients together completely.
Either put into a shallow oven-safe casserole dish for a brownie-like cake, and let sit for a few minutes; OR, spoon out into thin cookies, place onto a greased cookie sheet, or use parchment.
Bake at 350°F for 10-15 minutes if thin, or 20-30 minutes if thick.
Let cool, and enjoy!
The cocoa provides modest amounts of vitamin E, an antioxidant, plus vitamin K, choline, selenium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, and iron. It's a good source of insoluble fiber, and the antioxidents called flavonoids. If you can get cacao, a cold-pressed, raw form of cocoa, it has an even higher antioxidant content.
