This is a recipe I made years ago using hemp seeds. The cookies are called Hemp Chocolate Chip Cookies and they are made with hemp seeds, oats, barley flour, maple syrup, oil and a few other things. Barley flour is very hard to find now, so you’ll probably need to substitute all-purpose or perhaps whole wheat pastry flour.
I had a lot of fun experimenting with the hemp seeds, but I only made the cookies once. I think I’ll try them again soon and update the recipe a bit! I should probably change the name to Hemp Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies.
