This Oatmeal & Hemp Seed Cookie recipe is the perfect combo of two of our favorite cookies - oatmeal and chocolate chip.
We love cookies, especially when they're packed with so many great ingredients. Laura from Sprint 2 the Table packed these full of Farmer Direct oats and hemp seeds, plus dark chocolate, almond butter, and coconut.
Did you know hemp seeds are something of a super food? They contain all nine essential amino acids, as well as magnesium, zinc, iron, and calcium. They’re also a vegan source of protein and two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3), which can help fight depression, promote cardiovascular health, and are anti-inflammatory agents.
Here's the ingredient list, but check out Laura's full post for the full recipe!
- 1/2 C ground oats (oat flour)*
