Pumpkin Harvest Pancakes

I love Hemp Hearts ! They’re a great nut substitute high in protein, Omega 3s and other essential fats and vitamins.

I stumbled across this Pumpkin Harvest Pancakes recipe on Adam Hart’s Power of Food website. Many of his recipes feature Hemp Hearts as he credits his new found wellness to this Super Food.

Check out Roger Snow’s Hemp Heart products on and send your order to

9 one pound tubs fit in their packages. $10 each plus shipping. I’m interested in trying the new fat reduced/high protein Hemp Heart Flakes, $11 a tub.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

This forgiving recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Muffins offers up a light, moist chocolate snack.  You can use a tad extra zucchini, less oat bran or more sugar to suit your taste.  After I read nasty things about artificial sweeteners, I’ve stopped using Splenda and Brown Sugar Splenda. I’ve had good results with alkalizing Green Leaf Stevia and potassium rich Coconut Sugar.  If it’s not on hand, there’s always Brown Sugar !

Eat plain or frost with a healthy Nutella substitute.  I use a stiffer version of  Mike Geary’s Healthy Chocolate Pudding Recipe which is on the 6 Pack ABs website, one of my favourite Blogs.  It’s high in protein and good fats using Coconut Milk, Almond Butter, Avocado and Protein Powder.  Note: I used grass-fed, Stevia sweetened Kaizen Protein Powder, both Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream flavours.  Delicious !
