Oatmeal Hemp Cookies | Gluten Free Cookies | Dairy Free Cookies

What You’ll Need:
2 Large Ripe Bananas
1 Cup Oatmeal (I use Bob’s Red Mill Quick Gluten Free Rolled Oats)
2-3 Dashes of Cinnamon
4 tsp. Manitoba Harvest Hemp 

Optional Additions: Walnuts, Unsweetened Cocoa, Maple Syrup, Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, Blueberries…

What You’ll Do:
Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees. In a large bowl add peeled bananas and oatmeal. Using a potato masher, work the ingredients together until fully combined. Heat a small skillet or saucepan “toast” the hemp hearts until brown and add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Mix the hemp and cinnamon in with your banana and oats. Next, add in whatever oatmeal cookie “enhancers” you fancy. Place spoonfuls of cookie batter on a lightly greased cookie sheet (I use coconut oil). You should get around 15-18 cookies. Bake for 10-15 minutes to achieve the desired level of gooeyness and ENJOY!!
