Gluten Free Hemp Seed Wedding Cookie Recipe Photos

This recipe is a total keeper.  In fact, after getting over the sticker shock for a pound of hemp seeds and making my first batch of these I got onto amazon and ordered a giant five pound container of hemp seeds (amazon affiliate link).  We use Whole Foods’ powdered sugar because it is corn free as well as a corn free xanthan gum.  I must warn against doubling the recipe, every time I’ve done it the results aren’t as good as a normal sized batch.

The best compliment a recipe can get in our house is if my husband really likes it since he gets to eat “normal” food sometimes when he is at work.  These snowball cookies pass the test, the hemp seeds give them a buttery quality that we all really enjoy.

    1. Thanks! The only thing you might not like is the palm oil shortening but since you can have soy, etc. I think you could use margarine or regular vegetable shortening. I know what you mean about wheat, I can’t really decide whether I’ll run out for a sandwich once I’m done nursing or not. It has been a long time, after all.


  1. Hi! This looks delicious…. I just have one question. Does xanthan gum usually contain corn? We’ve just started to eliminate corn due to a newly-diagnosed allergy, and I just can’t believe how many common items include corn in some form! I’ve actually been working on a recipe for blueberry cobbler, and tried a version tonight using xanthan gum, and boy do I have a stomach ache now 😦 I couldn’t figure out what the problem was until I just read your post…


    1. Yes, it almost always has corn, we used to use guar gum until I found a corn free brand. Makes it hard to buy gluten free stuff since it is very common! Citric acid is another one to watch out for with corn but I admit to letting that slip in sometimes. I keep finding out things contain corn, even packaging. So sorry to hear you aren’t feeling well! Please feel free to ask any more questions!!!


    2. P.S. How much did you use? It can cause upset stomachs in large quantities for some people. Some baking powders have corn starch also but it is usually listed.
