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.
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.
