I love using hemp seeds in baked goods, and now I love them in pancakes, too. This recipe for hemp pancakes is as tasty as it is nutritious. The hemp seeds not only add great protein and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to your morning meal, but they bring a fabulous nutty flavor and great texture, too.

Prep time: 10 minutes: Cook time: 10-12 minutes | Total time: 20-22 minutes

Yields 9 (4-inch) pancakes


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose baking flour
  • 3 tablespoons hulled hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup, plus 1 tablespoon hemp milk (we used Pacific Foods)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Berries, maple syrup and butter for topping


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, hemp seeds, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, hemp milk and coconut oil. Mix to combine. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix to combine. If you think the batter is too dry, add 1 more tablespoon of hemp milk.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray the skillet with the non-stick cooking spray. When hot, add 2-3 tablespoons of the batter to form 1 (4-inch-round) pancake.
  4. When small bubbles begin to form and pop on the surface of the pancake, flip over and cook for another 30-45 seconds.
  5. Continue until all the batter is gone. Serve warm with berries, maple syrup and butter over the tops.
