Every so often I get a package in the mail, chock-full of gluten free goodies to test out. For example, I recently received an array of GF snacks from Kays Naturals. I had a great time testing their products out, and discovered a few favorites (I'll be posting a product review on Kays soon). If you've been reading this blog, then you know how often I use Bob's Red Mill products. It's no secret that I love their products. Once they realized what a big fan I am, they began sending me goodies to try and experiment with.
One day I received a bag of Hulled Hemp Seeds. At first, I had no idea how I was going to use them, but after doing a couple of Google searches, I had a few ideas. This following recipe is my first experiment using Hemp Seeds in a recipe. Hemp seeds are actually really good for you. As stated on the Bob's Red Mill website, "Hulled hemp seed is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids, and an excellent source of protein containing all of the essential amino acids." Of course, being the sweet-tooth that I am, I had to begin my hemp seed experimentation by whipping up some cookies. However, in the future I plan to incorporate them in breads, muffins, and possibly as a crunchy breading for fish or chicken.
These cookies were super-yummy! They were a bit crumbly, but melt-in-your mouth delicious. Enjoy!

- Mix together the brown sugar, large egg and butter in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the GF flour, cinnamon, and shelled hemp seeds.
- Mix together the dry and wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
- Spoon mixture onto cookies sheets. Leave about 3 inches between each drop since they spread out!

- Grab a mug of soy, rice or cow milk and chow down:)
