Inspired by a Barlean's Blogger Challenge, I decided to try making some donuts as a sweet treat for my family. And having never worked with hemp oil in the kitchen before, I was really looking forward to this challenge.

What is CBD oil and Why Use it?

CBD stands for cannabidiol. An oil that is extracted from the hemp plant. There are more than 100 cannabinoids that are found in cannabis. These cannabinoids, CBD which is one, are said to promote various health benefits in our body.

CBD works with our bodies natural endocannabinoid system to help regulate a variety of processes like eating, sleeping, relaxation, and more. It does this by working with your endocannabinoid system receptors and helps the body function at it's best, maintaining homeostasis.

Why Cook With it?

First things first.

CBD oil should not be 'cooked' with, so to speak.

CBD oil loses its effects once it is heated above 225 degrees, so I didn't really 'cook' with it.

I made a glaze that didn't require any heat at all, so we're good there.

There are MANY different ways that you can use Barlean's Chocolate Mint CBD oil. You can put it in coffee (just make sure it's not too hot), you can drizzle it over ice cream, you can even take it straight, but for me, I wanted to make serve it up as a treat.

Because why not.

Barlean's Chocolate Mint CBD Oil is emulsified, which means that your body can more easily and efficiently absorb the nutrients. Better absorption equals better nutrition. Who doesn't love that?

OK. OK. Enough about all that - On to the Recipe!
