Made with just 6 ingredients, this hemp cookies recipe makes a great tasting protein-packed snack.
Hemp seeds are a superfood high in amino acids, packed with omega-3 fatty acids and containing no soy, cholesterol, gluten, dairy or saturated fats.
From the Cannabis Sativa plant, hemp seed contains no THC, so there is no psychotropic (‘high’) effect.
For your cookies, of course you do have the option to replace the hemp seed with ‘other’ alternatives to gain the ‘effect’ you desire.
