Quick and Easy Hemp Butter
Photo credit: Alphafoodie.com
I can’t think of an easier recipe as all you need are hemp hearts and coconut sugar (other other sugar of choice).
1 cup organic hemp hearts
2 tablespoons coconut sugar (optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Toast hemp hearts for approx. 10 mins or until golden brown. (I find by toasting the hearts, the butter turned out with a nuttier taste.)
Remove from oven and let cool (I put in fridge to speed up the process)
Place hemp hearts and coconut sugar in to a high speed blender (I used my Bullet)
Blend until smooth.
Store in airtight container in fridge for up to 1 month.
If you don’t care to sweeten it, I highly recommend skipping the sugar. Or you can try substituting honey, cacao or other flavors to change it up.
