WCT Pumpkin Hemp Power Cookies Recipe
Benefits of Hemp Seeds:
Hemp seeds derived from a type of nut that is extremely nutritious and beneficial to our body. They are rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid, and alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Not only are they a great source of fat, they are also a high-quality source of protein. Gram per gram, hemp seeds provide more protein than chia seeds and flax seeds,
