Hemp Breakfast Muffins

No, there’s no funny business going on in these delicious hemp-apple muffins.

Hemp won’t get you high, but we swear these muffins are good enough to provide you with an other worldly experience. These tasty treasures burst with warm, homey flavor and all the nutrition you could ever want in a breakfast item—essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber, just to name a few standouts. Despite the name, try not to get too serious a case of the giggles!

What You Need:
  • 1-1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
