In honor of Hemp History week (June 5-11), we are celebrating this wonderfully nutritious plant by extending a 10 percent discount to all hemp-based products (excluding products already on sale in this month’s flyer).
We love provide our customers with inspiration to experiment with the all-natural food we carry (who says healthy eating can’t be amazing?), and so here is an on-the-fly recipe for how to use two incredible hemp products — Organic Hemp Pro Fiber and Hemp Oil from Manitoba Harvest — to concoct some deliciously vegan, non-psychoactive, grain-free chocolate hemp brownies.
Including hemp as a regular part of your diet (whether through snacks or salads) is an excellent way to make sure your body gets some cherished protein, magnesium (which helps regulate blood sugar and blood pressure, calm nerves and anxiety, and relieve headaches and muscle cramps) and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
So, without further ado, here’s the stuff on how you can make some darn tasty vegan chocolate hemp brownies.
- 8 tbsp Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Pro Fiber
- 8 tbsp Equal Exchange Organic Baking Cocoa
- ¼ cup Bob’s Red Mill coconut flour
- 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
- 3 tbsp Manitoba Harvest Hemp Oil
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tsp Simply Organic vanilla
- 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds + 3 tablespoons of water)
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- An extra 2 tbsp water if batter is too thick
- Enjoy Life vegan mini chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 325 °F.

- Mix in 2 tbsp of water.
- Add vegan chocolate chips (optional).

NOTES: You can substitute maple syrup for molasses, coconut nectar or sucanat. Also, you can use an 8x8” square pan, but bake for less time as there is more surface area.
