I remember the very first time I tried hemp, it was in cookie form. My local health food store had a basket of hemp cookies attached to samples of hemp hearts (presumably so you could make your own cookies at home). I really enjoyed hemp in cookie form and recently decided to re-create that lost recipe from so many years ago. These cookies are light and crisp - the perfect cookie to go with a cup of tea!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 medium egg
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup hemp hearts
- 1 cup flour
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter and allow to cool slightly. Whisk in egg and add brown sugar.
In a separate bowl combine cinnamon, hemp and flour.
Mix wet and dry ingredients together until just combined.
Drop 1 tbsp balls onto cookie sheet and flatten with your fingertips.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until cookies are lightly brown around the edges.
