Hemp Seed Applesauce Bread

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on July 4, 2012

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 eggs

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.

12th WIAW and 4th of July

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on July 4, 2012


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.

Lunch (11:45am)

The urban plate with tempeh, caramelized onions, and portobello mushroom stack and a kale salad at the Veggie Grill.

PM Snack (2:45pm)

Leftover homemade kale stir-fry.

Dinner (5:30pm)

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.

Dessert (7:30pm)

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.
