Banana Hemp Crackers

Did you know that hemp seeds aren’t actually legal for human consumption in Australia yet:

“Hemp seeds, hemp oil and hemp protein are currently allowed for sale in Australia for Non-Human consumption. Most customers either rub it on their skin, feed their pets or soil. Or take it overseas and consume it freely.”

It’s ridiculous, right?

I first read about consuming hemp from David Wolfe’s Superfoods book, long before I ever saw the oil, seeds or protein available for sale in Australia. I love that it’s a complete protein, it’s also high overall in it’s protein content per gram. A wonderful source of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, please remember that hemp meal (and seeds/oil) needs to be refrigerated or frozen after you open the pack as it can easily go rancid.

I’ve been regularly adding hemp meal to smoothies and muesli mixes for a while (I mean… regularly adding hemp to my pet’s food of course…) and it’s also a great ingredient addition for a sweet, raw cracker recipe. I love to eat these chewy snacks just like the picture shows – with some sliced fruit and a pinch of cinnamon. They are also lovely smeared with a bit of fresh chia fruit jam or to dunk in a sweet dip.

All you need to go a bit crackers is a food processor/blender and a dehydrator or your oven on it’s lowest temperature. So lets all tuck in!

  1. What a fabulous recipe! I’m so glad you shared it at Raw Foods Thursdays! I use hemp seeds all the time in the US in smoothies and salads, but I’ve never tried them in a cracker. Can’t believe they aren’t legal in Australia. Good thing you’re obeying the law. 🙂 Pinning this great recipe on our new Raw Foods Thursdays board!

      Thanks Heather! I can’t believe they aren’t legal either, there is a big push for legalisation – but that’s been going in for years, silly government! Thanks for having me over at Raw Food Thursdays 🙂

  2. What a great recipe! Very interesting that hemp isn’t allowed for human consumption yet in Australia. I am always learning something new! Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! 🙂

    The party will be GREAT this week! We are giving away a tote full of goodies from Namaste Foods! The items are gluten free and allergy friendly! Can’t wait to see what you bring to the party!
