Hemp seed and oatmeal cookies

I have just discovered hulled hemp seed. I thought hemp was only used in the making of fabric- silly me! Anyway- reading from the label- “hulled hemp seed is a good source of protein and contains all of the essential amino acid” so now you know 🙂 I thought I'd start with the cookie recipe on the packet so all I've done is convert to metric for the Thermomix, but it's so simple you needn't dirty the TM bowl. They did spread a lot while baking and I ended up using a cutter when they were baked to pretty them up. I would bake as a tray bake in future and just cut into squares.

Line a baking sheet with parchment if forming separate balls, or line a small tray bake pan.
Ingredients
  • 75g unsalted butter

  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 90g rolled oats

Method

Cream the butter and sugar, add egg and vanilla extract. Add all the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined. Either form into balls (warning- it is a very sticky mixture) should make 12-16 balls OR spread in a small pan and cut later.

Healthy and yummy. Substitute plain flour for and alternative if like.
