Hemp History Week comes each June. Why stop celebrating the usefulness, economy, and versatility of hemp the rest of the year? Use hemp seeds and celebrate with hemp fudge. This is a healthy hemp fudge you can snack on without the guilt.

Let’s make Hemp Fudge with Hemp Seeds

Here’s the recipe. Make it anytime, any month, now!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raisins (soaked overnight or 8 hours in 4 cups water)
  • 16 ounces raw tahini (sesame butter)
  • 1 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1⁄4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt

 

Preparation:

  1. Drain the raisins, keeping some of the liquid in case you need it for blending.
  2. Mix the raisins and tahini together in a bowl and stir to combine with a rubber spatula. Scoop into a food processor and process until it becomes a smooth paste. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times to combine well. You can add some raisin water 1 tablespoon at a time to help the mixture combine.
  3. Combine the paste and remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Press the mixture into a 9-inch bread or casserole pan.
  5. Refrigerate the pan for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan and cut the fudge into pieces and serve

Key Ingredient – Hemp Seeds

Hemp seeds are high in essential fatty acids (EFAs) and are a highly digestible protein. They’re awesome in hemp fudge, in a smoothie, or on a salad. Hemp is mineral-rich, gluten-free, has no known allergens, and requires no petroleum-based chemicals to grow. Oh, the glories of hemp! Just 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds contain 11g protein, 7.5g omega-6, and 3g of omega-3.
Look for sales on hemp seeds, hemp hearts, hemp protein, hemp granola, and hemp body care throughout the month of June! In the meantime, let’s have some hemp fudge.
