Mixed Berry Hemp Seed Muffins

Pin It
I first heard about the benefits of hemp seeds a few months ago and have been using them in my green smoothies.
Hemp seeds are super high in protein, full of a wide array of vitamins and they are full of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
They are pretty much a nutrition powerhouse!




















Last week I noticed my local Food Co-op featured a muffin recipe using hemp seeds.
I purchased my bag of hemp seeds from the Friendly City Food Co-op, but you can buy them at Whole Foods, health food stores and many grocery stores.
I was excited for a new way to use my bag of hemp seed goodness!

I made a few adaptions to their recipe, using items I had on hand and they turned out great!
Delicious and healthy too.
Win win!
After baking I froze the muffins on a cookie sheet and then placed them into a freezer-safe container.
In the mornings I grab one from the freezer and take it to work for a healthy mid-morning snack.
So good!
