Hemp seeds in cookies? Absolutely, add a couple tablespoons to cookies, granola bars, granola and more.
 

Here is a fun new twist on a cookie…  

These little seeds, also known as hemp hearts, are super nutritious. They are a great source of iron, vitamin E, and gamma-linolenic acid. They have a slight nutty flavor and are a good source of plant protein.

I sprinkle hemp seeds on my cereal in the morning along with some chia seeds. Add them to your hot or cold cereal. Sprinkle some over your salads. Toss some in your muffins, breads, and smoothies too.

 For best quality store your hemp seeds in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.  We go through them fairly quickly and keep them in an airtight container in the cupboard away from heat.

Why not add this “superfood” to your cookies too?

Not a soft, chewy cookie…but instead a crunchier cookie. They are sweet and tasty and perfect for ice cream or dairy free ice cream sandwiches. I find freezing them before adding the ice cream or non-dairy product works best.

 

GF Coconut, Oat & Nut – Hemp Seed Cookies
1/3 cup butter, or any dairy free option.
3/4 cup sugar, I use beet sugar. Coconut sugar is another option.
1 egg, or egg replacer equal to one egg.
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup gluten free flour of your choice. I suggest purchasing a gluten free pre-made mix, or use one of your own favorite gluten free flour mixes.   Gluten Free Flour Combinations For Baking.
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp xanthan gum or guar gum
3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup hulled hemp seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut (optional)
3 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners. Using a non-stick spray is ok too.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream butter or butter substitute and sugar. Add vanilla and egg or egg substitute. Mix well.

 In a small bowl stir together flour, oats, hemp seeds, baking soda, xanthan gum, nuts, and coconut.  Add this to butter and sugar mixture. Mix until well combined.
Form dough into about 1-inch balls and bake for 12 minutes. Cookies will flatten. Let sit a couple of minutes after removing cookies from the oven. Then cool cookies completely on wire racks.
