Hemp hearts are the tender inner part of the hemp seed, and they are a complete source of high-quality protein. They are also packed with healthy fats, including Omega 6 and Omega 3, as well as vitamins E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc. This makes hemp hearts an ideal ingredient for a nutritious and delicious granola. I love to enjoy this granola with almond milk and banana slices for a hearty breakfast.
It is also great as a topping for yogurt bowls, nighttime oatmeal, chia pudding and smoothie bowls. The nutty flavor of the hemp hearts is complemented by hints of cinnamon and vanilla, as well as a delightful coconut scent. This hemp granola is super crunchy and lightly sweetened with maple syrup. It has just the right amount of sweetness that I look for in a granola.
