25 Ways to Use Hemp Hearts

Do you have a giant bag of Hemp Hearts sitting in your pantry? If so, welcome to the club, darlin’. Because I’ve got the same thing, purchased at a wholesale grocery store a few weeks ago. I was reeled in by all the health benefits–full of protein (nearly 10 grams of plant-based protein per 30 gram serving size), massive Omega-6 and Omega-3‘s and lots of personal testimonials, including support against arthritis, eczema, blood pressure, and weight management. Sign me up, I thought. But as new products have a tendency to do, my bag of hemp hearts has been sitting on the shelf since, barely used in my day-to-day cooking.

Which just doesn’t seem right. Which is why I decided today is the day. If I can find 25 super-simple ways to use Hemp Hearts, then I might just feel inspired enough to…well..start using them! Below is my list. If you have your own favorite uses for this healthy seed, leave a comment!
