These Hemp Seed Cookies may not be the most attractive cookies in the cookie jar but they make up for it with other bragging rights.
Hemp Seed Cookies Bragging Rights:
- These cookies have 75% less sugar than a regular oatmeal cookie.
- The ingredient, Hemp Hearts, are considered a superfood that contains protein and omega fatty acids.
- The Medjool Dates are high in fiber and potassium
- The Oats are 100% natural whole grain, high in fiber, and heart-healthy.
Hemp seeds are high in polyunsaturated fat and that is good fat! Eating moderate amounts of polyunsaturated (and monounsaturated) fat in place of saturated and trans fats can benefit your health.
Nope, you can’t get high!
No, you won’t get a buzz or fail a drug test eating these Hemp Seed Cookies. THC is not produced in the seeds of the plant.
