Hemp cakes with pomegranate seedsWe all
love sweets without exception. Some of us like to sweeten our lives more often, while others treat eating sweets as an occasional dose of happiness. Bars, cakes, ice cream, chips are available at your fingertips. Unfortunately, most of us have long since become slaves to the narcotic effects of sugar, as it disrupts neurotransmitters, causes hormonal changes, which is due to chemical changes in our brain. Simple sugars act in such a way that they cause spikes in serotonin levels, so immediately after consuming them you feel relieved, soothed, pleased. Unfortunately, this lasts for a very short time, then a reflex is created in us to automatically reach for the "next" potato chip, candy bar or cookie.
What you need to know is that this is how food corporations want to make you a sugar junkie to provide them with a steady income. Don't let them destroy your health and take away your happiness. Replace store sweets stuffed with disgusting high carbohydrates with healthier, homemade sweets.Hemp flour and pomegranate pancakesThe thing I
in the world is sweets and baked goods using hemp flour. Its content of protein, minerals and vitamins can't compare with any other flour. In addition, they are products that can be subjected to any kind of thermal processing with complete impunity. Their great advantage is that they do not produce trans fats when heated to high temperatures. We just have to remember that some active substances, for example, omega acids will lose their properties after heat treatment. Instead, we gain a lowering of the glycemic index (the effect of the meal on the blood sugar spike) of our sweetness and a sizeable dose of healthy substances. In fact, when it comes to the use of hemp flour in sweet recipes, we can talk about the advantages alone, not only in terms of health but also in terms of taste. The slightly nutty flavor of the flour combines fantastically with fruits, spices and other additives, giving dishes a more dry and distinct taste.Hemp cakesHemp
Wash and peel apples, cut into thin slices. Combine hemp flour and spelt flour in a tall bowl, add egg, 1 teaspoon of honey or molasses, milk and mix until smooth. Add sliced apples and mix. In a heated frying pan, fry a scooped portion of the batter with the apple on both sides until the batter is golden. The racakes can be served with pomegranate seeds, fruit, jam or sweet syrup. I recommend using hemp or coconut oil.
