Hemp CookiesHemp Picnic Recipes

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

2 apples

1 pear

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.

About Hemp History Week

The 5th annual Hemp History Week is June 2 – 8 2014. Find out about special events and how to get involved. Hemp History Week celebrates America’s rich history with industrial hemp before it was outlawed; advocates for a federal policy change to let hemp farmers frow this versatile and profitable crop; educated consumers by showcasing the range of hemp products available and the nutritional and environmental benefits they provide.

Come learn about this wonder crop by viewing the Industrial Hemp documentary film, Bringing it Home, which tells the story of hemp: past, present and future and a global industry that includes textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more. Delicious refreshments will be available from our beverage sponsor, Reeds Ginger Brew and Kombucha.

Documentary Film Screening Monday, June 2, 7:00 P.M. Santa Monica Main Library Auditorium. 601 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica.
