In Honor of Hemp History Week
* Dehydrator needed
Prep time: 30 minutes to make, 14 hours to dehydrate
Servings: 11 cookies
1 cup raw shelled hemp seeds
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup dried fruit mix of choice (I used SuperBerry Symphony from Essential Living Foods)
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ tbsp vanilla powder
In a food processor, puree the apples, pear, and spices. Add the hemp seeds and puree until smooth. Add the dried fruit and nuts and pulse until mixed but chunky. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop out cookie dough and smooth the top with a spatula. Flip measuring cup over onto a dehydrator tray lined with a teflex sheet (the solid sheet that covers the mesh-like dehydrator tray). Continue until all the dough is scooped out to make ¼ cup size cookies. Dehydrate for 12 hours. Flip and remove teflex so the cookies are now on the clean mesh tray and then dehydrate four more hours.
