Where To Buy Hemp Flour

Before you get into the gritty details about our with hemp flour recipes, you should definitely know where to purchase it. After all, you need to be able to purchase hemp flour in order to bake with it! While you may be able to find hemp flour in specialty grocery stores or health food stores, it is very easy to find and purchase online.

Amazon is probably the most popular source that you can use to buy hemp flour. There is a wide variety of hemp flours to choose from with many vendors selling their variations of hemp flour. However, pure organic hemp flour is what many people prefer to use and what will work well when you are baking with hemp flour.

When you are purchasing hemp flour and scrolling to find one to buy, remember that hemp seeds, hemp protein powder, hemp hearts and hemp flour are all different products – you want to purchase hemp flour when you intend to use if for baking. This next section will explain why!

Hemp Flour vs. Hemp Seeds

As you look to buy hemp flour for baking, you will likely see other products such as hemp seeds, hemp hearts and hemp protein powder. Sure, they are all from the same plant so what is the difference? Does it matter which you use to bake with? It absolutely matters as they are all slightly different and those differences will definitely affect your baking. Take a look at this chart which compares all of the products:

Hemp Seeds The whole hemp seed, still intact with the outer shell. Very fatty and oily
Hemp Hearts The outer shells are removed and the hemp has a perfect ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Also called “hulled” hemp
Hemp Flour Oil is removed from the hemp seeds and sifted creating a fibrous flour
Hemp Protein Powder Fat and oil is removed from the hemp and sifted multiple times, removing the excess fiber, leaving behind a high protein powder that is plant based

As you can see, each product varies slightly and is therefore used for different purposes. Hemp seeds and hemp hearts taste fantastic (thanks to that delicious fat they contain!) and most people will eat them raw or mix them right into foods like yogurt, smoothies or milk. Hemp flour is a powder which is much more dry and fibrous, making it ideal for baking. Hemp protein powder is quite powerful and is best consumed when mixed into smoothies, shakes, or milk.

When you are looking to do some baking with hemp flour, definitely buy hemp flour. Your baked goods will thank you and will turn out much more delicious than if you tried to use one of the other hemp products!

Why Use Hemp Flour?

Now that you are clearly interested in baking with hemp flour, what exactly are the benefits? Why would you even want to use hemp flour rather than regular old wheat flour? Well, there are a variety of reasons!

First, hemp flour is very nutritious. Baking with hemp flour will give you all of the benefits of the seed making your foods much more healthy. Wheat flour actually contains very little nutrients, adding almost no nutritional value to your baking. So say goodbye to wheat flour and see what hemp flour can do for you!

High in Protein

Hemp seed flour is very high in protein. In fact, hemp flour contains an amazing level of protein at 33% and, of course, it is all plant based. This makes it perfect for vegans or vegetarians that are looking to increase their protein intake naturally. In addition to being naturally high in protein, the protein in hemp flour is easily digestible which means your body will actually be able to absorb it.

In every two tablespoons of hemp flour, there is 5 grams of digestible protein. That is incredibly high! As you can imagine, baking with the hemp flour will produce some fantastic, protein-packed foods.

Gluten Free

Hemp flour is naturally gluten free making it a perfect flour for anyone who has celiac disease of a gluten sensitivity. However, many hemp flours on the market are mixed with other glutinous flours in order to make it lighter and easier to bake with. If you require the gluten free properties of hemp flour, be sure to get 100% pure hemp flour that has no additives or “extras” mixed in.

Amino Acids

Hemp flour is loaded with amino acids, most notably omega 3’s and omega 6’s. Our bodies cannot naturally produce these amino acids which means you need to find other ways to ingest them, and luckily hemp flour is the perfect food to provide these nutrients! Consuming omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids will help reduce inflammation and help with your overall heart and brain health. Seems like a good idea to be sure you are getting enough of those amino acids!

Vitamins and Minerals

Hemp flour is full of vitamins and minerals that will make your baked goods very nutritious. Here is a quick list to get you familiar with what is in hemp flour:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Thiamine
  • Protein
  • Phosphorous
  • Folate
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B

Pretty amazing, right? When you compare that to bleached, white wheat flour, the difference is astonishing. Wheat flour actually has almost no vitamins or minerals as they are all stripped away from the wheat when the flour is processed. Hemp flour is clearly the more beneficial flour!

Fiber

Hemp flour is very high in fiber which is necessary to keep your digestive system functioning well. Eating foods that are high in fiber will also help you feel full for longer. Eating foods baked with hemp flour and all that fiber will keep you feeling full and could help curb your appetite, leading to better weigh loss. Eating baked goods for weight loss? Sounds like a dream!

Tips for Baking with Hemp Flour

Now comes the part you have been waiting for – the baking! Baking with hemp flour is not at all like baking with all-purpose, white flour that is used in most mainstream recipes. Since hemp flour is higher in protein, fiber and fat than white wheat flour, you cannot simply replace the flour in any given recipe with hemp flour- it will not turn out well! There are a few tricks to learn before jumping into baking with hemp flour.

Mix the Flours

Hemp flour is very dense which can be a reason to love it. All of those nutrients packed into a hearty, heavy flour….yum! However, the weight of hemp flour doesn’t necessarily help when it comes to baking. Hemp flour is so dense that if you were to simply replace a cup of all-purpose flour with a cup of hemp flour, your baked goods wouldn’t be able to rise properly, creating a solid, heavy-end product. This does not sound very appetizing…

The solution to hemp flour’s density is to mix it with other flours or another soft, powdery ingredient. It is recommended to replace about half of the flour in any recipe with hemp flour for optimum results. So, if your recipe calls for 1 cup all-purpose flour, simply use ½ cup all-purpose flour and ½ cup hemp flour. This is enough of a buffer to get all of the benefits of hemp flour and still have a baked good that is light enough to rise (you want fluffy cupcakes after all!). Some other flours you could blend with hemp flour in a 1:1 ratio (equal amounts) are:

  • Almond Flour
  • Cashew Flour
  • Pea Flour
  • Cassava Flour
  • Oat Flour
  • Chickpea Flour
  • Amaranth Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Banana Flour
  • Millet Flour
  • Whole Grain Flour
  • Quinoa Flour
  • Brown Rice Flour

All of these will mix well with hemp flour and each will lend their own taste to the recipes. If you are in need of a gluten free flour, just be sure the alternative flour blend you add to the hemp flour is definitely gluten free!

Hemp Flour and Cocoa Powder

If you are baking something that is loaded with chocolate or could benefit from a little bit of added chocolate, blend the hemp flour with cocoa powder rather than a different type of flour as discussed above. So, if a recipe asks for 1 cup white flour, use ½ cup hemp flour and ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder. This will add a whole lot of chocolate flavor while also making the hemp flour a little bit lighter.

You may want to add about 2 Tablespoons of sugar to your recipe as well to combat the strong taste of pure cocoa powder, to give your baked good a little bit of extra sweetness.

Basic Baking with Hemp Flour

If you are trying to use hemp flour as a substitute for white wheat flour, you should stick to basic recipes. The less ingredients in the recipe, the more successful your substitution will be. If you are making a hemp flour bread, search for recipes that only include flour, water, yeast and salt (don’t worry, there are a lot!). A basic pie crust recipe with just flour and water is also perfect.

There are many recipes that are written specifically for hemp flour and therefore are able to be a little bit more complex (like the ones featured below). These recipes have been tested and altered to work specifically with hemp flour rather than just using it as a replacement for all purpose flour. However, if you are trying to create your own, start simple as you learn how hemp flour reacts and interacts in baking. After just a few recipes, you will be a pro!

What does Hemp Flour Taste Like?

One very important thing to consider when baking with hemp flour is the taste. You want your baked goods to be delicious, right? So what does hemp flour taste like? Many people describe the taste as nutty and earthy. It can even have a plant-like quality to it which many people love when making savory foods.

When baking with hemp flour, you are likely to taste the nutty flavor as much of the “plant” taste is masked by the sugars commonly found in baking. This nutty taste is perfect for pancakes, muffins, waffles, cookies, brownies and just about any baked good you can think of. If nuts would taste good in your baking, hemp flour will be a great choice!

Though hemp flour is from a cannabis plant, hemp flour does not have any THC in it, making it completely safe and legal. Hemp flour does have many of the beneficial properties found in CBD, such as its anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce pain. When you toss some hemp flour into your baking, there is no need to worry, you are only adding the best parts of the hemp plant!

Now that you are an expert on hemp flour, you are likely ready to try out a few recipes. Give a few of these baked goods a try and you will fall in love with the taste and benefits of hemp flour! Enjoy!
