Oat, Flax & Hemp Chocolate Chip Cookies is an old recipe I posted back when hempseeds were new on the scene. A decade later you can find them everywhere including CVS. These cookies are a great way to use them. They are thick, chewy, and made with other wholesome sounding ingredients including oats, flax and nuts. Another ingredient is barley flour. Barley flour is almost impossible to find these days, so you can substitute all-purpose or white whole wheat.
It was 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.
Oat, Flax & Hemp Chocolate Chip Cookies
¾ cup rolled oats
¾ cup barley flour or all-purpose or white whole wheat
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons golden flax seeds (I left them whole, but may try grinding)
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chocolate chips, vegan
2-3 tablespoons chopped nuts (pecans)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In medium bowl mix together oats, barley flour, salt, baking soda, flax and hemp seeds.
In a smaller bowl, combine the oil, maple syrup, water and vanilla extract. Add liquid mixture to dry mixture and stir only until thoroughly mixed.
Shape into 12 mounds (about an inch in size) on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 20-22 minutes. let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then move to rack to fully cool.
