Lemon Hemp Seed Cookies

Hemp seeds are very healthy and can be incorporated into baking. They contain many nutrients such as iron, calcium and vitamin D. Lemons have unique phytonutrient properties and are an excellent source of vitamin C. For our latest cookie recipe, we baked Lemon Hemp Seed Cookies that were made with a blend of pre-soaked gluten free flours. The cookies were tasty and slightly fluffy in the center - check out our simple recipe below. Enjoy!
