After attending a few natural and organic conferences and events I have learned a lot about hemp hearts, so when I got the opportunity to review the product I was super happy. I have had a few samples before and maybe because of they way the package looks, my first idea was to use them for my oatmeal, which they taste great at, but I wanted to learn more about them and see what other recipes you can uses them for.
