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.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
