It has been a few years since I've had hemp hearts, but when Manitoba Harvest sent me a pack I remembered how delicious they taste. They taste kind of like pine nuts or sesame seeds! I think they're slogan should be like the Franks hot sauce and say "I put that $%#@ on everything" ha! I have said a few times now that it would make a very delicious nut butter!
I have mostly been topping my peanut butter + banana covered toast with it, my oatmeal and also have been sneaking it in my little boys yogurt and his peanut butter sandwiches. He has no clue they're in there and that they are packing a punch of 10g of protein per serving and a whole lot of healthy fats too.
Some note-worthy points about Manitoba Harvest #hemphearts:
1. lower in carbs that flax and chia
2. they are raw
3. vegan friendly
4. non-GMO (I am becoming more and more aware of GMOs and they're so scary)
5. grown and packaged in Canada!! Whoop!
6. picky one-year-old eaters are unaware that they are eating this goodness when it is snuck into their food ;)
