Hemp is normaly associated with drugs. But hemp fibres was always used for making ropes and tissue and it nutritious seed were eaten, too. The seeds are packed with essential fatty acids, all eight essential amino acids, vitamin E, vitamin B, potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. And the hemp seeds you can buy at whole food stores are as good as THC free (This is written on my package, too). So its a healthy ingredients for a healty bread.
Because I am still cleaning up my pantry, I also add sesame and flax seeds and replace a part of the flour with breadcrumbs. I use to dry single slices of bread which are getting steal and later grind them into breadcrumbs. So adding Breadcrumb into a new bread is some kind of bread recycling! 😉
The bread is delicious: It has a slight nut taste and it is so crunchy because of the seeds. Hemp seeds stay crunchy even in bread. I prefer to eat it with some butter and fleur de sel, thats is enough to underline its taste!
