- 4 pork chops, boneless
- ¾ cup almond meal or almond flour, divided
- ¼ cup milk
- ½ cup hemp hearts
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- ½ tsp. paprika
- ¼ tsp. ground pepper
- 2 tsp. large granule Salt
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup milk
Pat pork chops dry with paper towel, and set aside. Measure 2 Tbs. almond flour onto plate. Pour milk into shallow dish. Combine hemp hearts, ½ cup almond flour, and seasonings in separate shallow dish.
Melt coconut oil in skillet on medium low heat. The oil is ready for frying when a drop of water sizzles.
Lightly coat both sides of pork chop in almond flour and shake off excess. Dunk both sides of pork chop into milk. Place pork chop in seasoned hemp heart dish and thoroughly coat both sides. Repeat with remaining pork chops.
Add pork chops to skillet with coconut oil (you may have to fry them in batches), and cook on medium heat 3–5 minutes, until dark golden brown. Flip and cook 3–5 minutes more. Remove pork chops to cooling rack and allow to rest a few minutes before serving.
