Hemp & Oat Baguette

I have replaced the previous recipe for hemp flour baguettes with this easier and tastier version. I am after simplicity after all. 

Hemp & Oat Baguette
2dl/200ml hemp flour
2dl/200ml oats
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
4dl/400ml finger warm water
sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF. Combine all dry ingredients in a big bowl. Add the water and blend until an even but yet a bit sticky dough has formed. Place the dough on a floured surface and divide it in four equally sized pieces. Form each piece in to a 15cm/6inches long baguette. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place the baguettes on a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 10min. Best enjoyed same day, preferably straight out from the oven.

HEALTH BENEFITS of Hemp: Hemp flour is simply milled hemp seeds. The seed contain the perfect ratio of essential fatty acids, omega-3, -6 and -9, to enhance the metabolism. This makes hemp perfect to include in your diet if you want to loose weight. It is one of the best sources of vegetarian protein out there with a value of 31.9g of protein per 100g. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered anti-inflammatory and beneficial in the cure of eczema, psoriasis and acne amongst others.
