Hemp brownies

I can hear the snickers already: brownies laced with hemp? Relax: Hemp is not marijuana (they are merely botanical cousins; hemp has no psychoactive properties at all -- although to be honest, I think the Michael Phelps flap was a major overreaction). I've long thought that hemp will be the crop that saves the family farm: it requires no pesticides or other nasties to thrive, and it's unbelievably useful for food, clothing, and much more. But that's another story. For now, I'm psyched about French Meadow Bakery's Hemp Brownie Bites. They're moist, tasty, and bite-sized, a perfect snack. (French Meadow makes wonderful, healthy breads, too; and I blogged a while back about FM's terrific gluten-free desserts.)
