Position an oven rack in the lower third of the oven and heat to 356F (180C).
Line the bottom of an baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Prepare and measure all ingredients using measuring cups.
In a small glass or stainless steel mixing bowl add measured 1 cup oats, 3/4 cup whole grain flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons Ceylon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Use silicone spatula to mix the dry ingredients.
In a large mixing bowl combine 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted and cooled to room temperature and 1/2 cup maple syrup. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Use the whisk and mix it until you get the sticky texture.
Add in 1 egg, and stir vigorously using the whisk.
When the batter looks thick and well blended, add in the dry ingredients. Using the spatula mix everything until fully combined.
Gently fold in 1/4 cup hemp seeds. Use spatula.
Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
Use ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop cookie mixture and place it on a baking sheet. Arrange the cookies 2-inches apart. Slightly flatten the dough and shape cookies with the spoon.
Bake cookies 12 to 15 minutes. Watch for cookies and don’t over-bake them.
When you get them out of the oven, cookies will be soft. Leave them to cool for few minutes on the baking sheet then transfer them to a cookie rack to cool completely. They will harden after they cool down.
STORING: Keep cookies in a cookie jar or air-tight food container. They will last up to 5 days. You can keep them in the fridge. That way they will last longer. Place the cookies in a zip-lock bag and freeze up to 3 months. Thaw them on room temperature before serving.As a measure, I used US cup (240ml).Disclaimer: The nutritional information provided is approximate and is calculated using online tools.
