I cook according to the KISS principle (that’s: keep it simple, stupid) as I came to cooking fairly late in life, and have a tiny kitchen that’s not designed for elaborate food preparation. My small countertop accommodates simple tasks like joint rolling and blending a handful of ingredients in one bowl. I ignore recipes that demand multiple kitchen utensils, as I don’t have the time or the space for them.
Instead, I focus on using organic ingredients, and try to stay away from any foods that are likely to cause inflammation of the gut such as sugar, wheat, milk, honey, cream or cheese. This may sound restrictive at first, but you’d be amazed what you can come up with when you’re forced to use alternative ingredients. Watch this space! I have lots of recipes, and will be sharing them in coming months.
This is a super easy recipe for Cannabis Hemp Heart Brownies, combining cannabis and cocoa, two of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Warning: these brownies taste divine and are too easy to eat, so if you’re worried about eating too much, know in advance that these are hard to resist. Dose your butter accordingly. Note that I use almond flour in this recipe, because it’s low carb, and nut flours such as almond or hazelnut really work well with, and enhance the flavour of cannabutter.
Let’s get down to business: the recipe.
Canna Hemp Heart Brownies
- 140grams of Cannabutter
- 3/4 cup of Unrefined sugar
- 80grams of Cocoa
- 2 large Eggs (Free Range)
- 150grams of Almond Flour
- 80grams of Hemp Hearts
- Pinch of Sea Salt
- ½ tsp. of baking powder
- 1 tsp. of Vanilla Essence (optional)
- 1 tsp. of Ground Coffee (optional)
- 40grams of crushed Walnut (optional)
- Sea Salt to garnish
Mix all the dry ingredients, almond flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, sea salt and hemp hearts, in a bowl, and blend them together. Add in the cannabutter (make sure to melt it first) and blend it in, too.
Then add the eggs, and continue to blend until you have a gooey mix. It’s important to make sure the mix is runny enough to pour into your tray. If it’s too stiff, add some almond milk, and stir in till you have a softer consistency.
Pour the mix onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. I cooked mine in a shallow tray, 20 x 30cm. It doesn’t matter what size your baking tray is, but if it’s a deep tray, the brownies will take a bit longer to cook.
Preheat the oven at 220° and cook the brownies for 20 to 25 minutes depending on how deep your tray is.
You’ll know when your Canna Hemp Heart Brownies are ready because your kitchen will fill up with the luscious smell of roasted cannabutter and cocoa. While still hot, sprinkle the brownies with sea salt, and leave to cool.
This recipe is really easy to play with, so if for example, you’re a big fan of ginger, add some in there. If you like berries, throw a handful in the mix, and blend. You can eat them hot with ice cream, or leave them cool, and eat with a cup of coffee. Expect to taste dark luscious decadence.
