"Wolfe Bites" Recipe Using Hemp Hearts

As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was given the opportunity to review Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts! We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own.
Here's some info about Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest website
  • Great tasting - Hemp Hearts have a slightly nutty taste, similar to a sunflower seed or pine nut.
  • Easy to use - Simply sprinkle Hemp Hearts on salad, cereal & yogurt, add to smoothies and recipes, or eat them straight from the package!
  • Nutritious - per 30 gram serving, Hemp Hearts contain 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of Omegas.
  • Hemp Hearts have more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of chia or flax.

We have been wanting to make something new with these Hemp Hearts. We decided to throw a bunch of yummy ingredients together into our food processor one night and the "Wolfe Bites" were born.
We put 1/4 cup of Coconut Flour and Raisins into the blender first. Then, we put in a package of protein powder (which was equal to one serving) and the package of Hemp Hearts, along with a ripe banana. We mixed it all up, then added an estimated 1/2 cup of almond butter (we didn't measure) and a drizzle of honey. Blended it all up for about 2 minutes or so. Next, we poured the mixture into muffin tins with nonstick spray on the bottoms.  Finally, we baked them for about 10 minutes at 425 degrees.

They tasted yummy! We enjoy them for an after dinner treat and before our workouts! We think they have about 4 or 5 grams of protein in each bite!
