Ingredients
  

  • 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)

Instructions
 

  • 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.

  • Let cool, and enjoy!

Notes

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.

Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue sauce, whether for dipping or for making up a mean batch of pulled pork is a sweet favorite. This recipe isn't sugar free, but it's seriously reduced sugar. A commercial barbecue sauce will run about 12g of sugar per 2Tbsp serving and many of the homemade recipes online start with ketchup (essentially a sugar sauce) and then have you add cups more sugar! Kidsweet™ Barbecue Sauce starts with plain tomato paste and has 2.5g of sugar per 2Tbsp serving. And let's not kid ourselves – who is going to use only 2Tbsp of barbecue sauce? Don't forget to make a batch of Kidsweet™ cole slaw, which goes great with everything barbecue.
