Since cannabis has been legalized here in Canada I have been enjoying playing around with different recipes and developing my own. This recipe makes 48 cookies. Depending on your cannabis tolerance you may want to start with 1/4 of a cookie and increase as needed after an hour. If you are new to edibles, be aware that the effects may take an hour or more to kick in.
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (only add this if your flour blend does not have this in the ingredients list)
1/2 cup butter,melted
1/4 teaspoon cannabis oil, melted to liquid consistency
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a large bowl, mix together the oats, gluten free all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder,salt, cinnamon and xanthan powder if using; set aside
- Whisk together the melted butter and cannabis oil until well blended.
- Pour the butter and cannabis oil mixture, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a stand mixer fitted with a bowl and blend together on medium speed; add the egg and vanilla.
- Add the flour mixture a bit at a time until well blended.
- Line 4 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place 12 balls per cookie sheet making sure there is plenty of space for the dough to spread. These spread about 3 to 4 times the width of the ball.
- Place in oven, one cookie sheet at a time, for 10 minutes or until the edges of cookie start to brown.
- Remove from oven and place cookie sheet on a cooling rack.
- Continue to cook the remainder of cookies, one baking sheets at a time.
- Allow the cooked cookies to cool completely before removing them with a spatula. These are very thin and will fall apart if you try to remove them before they are cooled.
- Place in a re-sealable freezer bag and keep refrigerated.
- Enjoy, in moderation.
