Grower Question: My plant produced seeds, with no male in the tent. Are they going to be viable?

I grew some exceptional Honeybells from seed. She didn't have huge buds, but she is very potent, and I couldn't get any clippings to take root. I'd be super-excited if the seeds are actually viable. I know I can basically just plant the seeds & see if they germ, but if I knew one way or the other if they'll sprout it would be quite cool. This was my first grow, and I was worried about harvesting too early (since she produced seeds, I don't think that was a problem). I don't think I had any male flowers or hermaphrodite 'bananas' show up on the other plants I had in the same tent.

I have my grow tents in the garage due to space/noise constrictions, and it's still too hot for me to try to start more plants (we can't afford the electric bill to cool the garage down & fans aren't even touching this heat here in Vegas), so I don't want to plant one to see if it'll grow yet, because then I won't have anywhere to move it once it gets big enough to go in the tent.
