Cinnamon Hemp Seed Butter


This Cinnamon Hemp Seed Butter recipe was created by Kristen Suzanne, and shared with us by Manitoba Harvest. It uses the convenience of hemp seed butter, but I’ve included a DIY hemp seed butter option in case you are unable to locate some.

Hemp seeds are very tender, fatty, tiny little seeds. Unlike many other seeds, they blend very well, and can become a rich, creamy butter. They’re relatively high in protein and fat, 9 grams and 14 grams per ounce, respectively, and they also contain a whopping 6000 milligrams of ALA omega-3 fatty acids. That’s around 400 to 500% of the daily recommended intake. Consequently, they’re a great option for keto, low carb, and paleo diets.

Hemp seed butter does have a greenish hue, and a bit of a grassy taste. To mitigate this very natural taste, we like to blend in flavors, like in this cinnamon hemp seed butter recipe.

  • Pinch sea salt, or to taste

DIY Hemp Seed Butter Option: If you are unable to get hemp seed butter, you can make your own! Blend shelled hemp seeds (hemp hearts) in a high speed blender or food processor. It takes a few minutes, but they will release their oils and the mixture will begin to look smooth. If it is too thick, you can add just a little hemp seed oil or other oil to thin it out. You'll need about 1 cup of the hemp seeds to make ½ cup of hemp seed butter.
No Sugar Added Citrus Variation: Omit the sweeter and salt, but whisk in 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed orange juice.
