I re-vamped an applesauce bread recipe and added hemp seeds and tested it out on my co-workers. It was a hit! They seemed to like the hemp seeds better than flax seeds.
3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 cup chocolate chips (semi sweet or dark)
¾ cup hulled hemp seeds
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. baking powder
½ cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.
Beat together eggs, sugar, and canola oil. Mix in the applesauce and sour cream.
Mix in dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in chocolate chips and hemp seeds. Pour batter in equal amounts in each pan.
Bake for 1 hr., 20 minutes. Invert onto wire racks to cool.
Hello Everyone! Happy WIAW and 4th of July. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.
This is what I ate:Breakfast (6:15am)
An earlier start so I could get off to a morning study session, started with my usual coffee with hazelnut milk and stevia. Also, 2 poached eggs with fresh ground pepper and my favorite tarragon shallot citrus seasoning from Savory Spice shop. And a few assorted vitamins.
AM Snack (9:00am)
Fresh strawberries and kiwi.
The urban plate with tempeh, caramelized onions, and portobello mushroom stack and a kale salad at the Veggie Grill.
Leftover homemade kale stir-fry.
A salad with grilled chicken, greens, roasted mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese at Bruxie. This restaurant is a waffle sandwich place and the sandwiches are good but to heavy for me for dinner.
We picked up a nutella cupcake from Merely Sweet to share at home with my husband.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope your day was full of healthy meals.
