Hemp Seed Banana Muffins

Hemp seeds have a natural blend of easily digested essential fats, proteins, amino acids, antioxidants, iron, zinc, vitamins, calcium, magnesium, potassium, enzymes, phosphorus, and more. All amino acids essential to optimum health are in hemp seeds, including Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).

We are obsessed with superfoods like hemp seeds, and you should be too! Stocking up the pantry with a variety of hemp seeds offers an array of nutrients and deliciously good uses when it comes to making nutritious snacks.

Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Spiced Matcha Latte

Matcha preparation requires covering tea plants with shade cloths before harvesting. The tea plant is then hand-selected, steamed to stop fermentation, then dried and aged in cold storage, which deepens the flavor. The dried leaves are then stone-ground into a fine powder. Matcha has a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. In addition to providing minerals and vitamins, matcha powder is rich in antioxidants termed polyphenols.

Give your friends and family a tasty treat this Australia Day with your yummy snacks with a spiced matcha latte!
