Healthy Hemp Oil-Infused Recipes and Cooking Tips

Hemp Oil-infused recipes, anyone?

If you’ve never used Hemp Oil in your favorite foods, you’re in for a treat. Did you know that Jamie Oliver drizzles Hemp Oil over his ice-cream? Meanwhile, LA’s Chef Matt uses cannabis butter in his sweet potato pie recipe. From Hemp Buttercream Frosting to Hemp-Crusted Fried Chicken, there’s no shortage of ideas for including the green herb in foods.

In fact, many of our Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil tincture customers have realized that Hemp Oil is a fantastic addition to many healthy recipes. A little Hemp Oil goes a long way and delivers powerful results for your culinary enjoyment.

Below is a curated roster of recommended recipes that have been elevated to a new level through the infusion of our Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tinctures. During our search for the best Hemp Oil recipes, we were able to find dishes appropriate for each mealtime. Consequently, we have arranged our recommended Hemp Oil-infused recipes chronologically — Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner — while also adding a dessert recommendation for a sweet finish.

There’s no better way to start your day than with a healthy breakfast. Studies show that eating a hearty breakfast may actually help you stay slimmer. If you’d like a fresh take on the first meal of the day, these Hemp Oil-infused recipes should do the trick.

Hemp Oil-Infused Avocado Toast

For a super healthy meal, try this avocado toast. Specifically, avocados are rich in vitamins (B5, B6, C, E, and K), potassium, antioxidants, fiber, and monounsaturated fatty acids. In fact, avocados contain more potassium than bananas. Now, imagine how much healthier that avocado toast will be with the infusion of Hemp Oil:

Avocado Toast Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 avocado
  • Lemon juice (approx. ½ a lemon)
  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture
  • Optional Ingredients
    • Fresh basil
    • Paprika
    • Pine nuts
    • Toasted sesame seeds

Avocado Toast Directions

  1. We recommend either poaching or frying your eggs. However, you can cook them any way you like as long as they’ll stay on top of your toast.
  2. Peel and mash the avocado in a bowl, along with the lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Toast your bread slices using a toaster or grill.
  4. Combine olive oil, salt, and pepper with a normal dose of Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture.
  5. Spread your avocado mash over the toast, and add the eggs on top.
  6. Add any optional ingredients listed or others of your own creation.
  7. Drizzle your olive oil/Hemp Oil mixture over your eggs.
  • Vegan Option: replace eggs with fried tofu
  • Meat Lovers Option: add bacon on top of the eggs

As can be seen, it’s easy to customize this simple breakfast to please your palate!

Hemp Oil-Infused Fluffy Eggless Pancakes

If you’re looking for a quick and easy hot breakfast, these fluffy eggless pancakes can be whipped up in less than 15 minutes! And, if you’d like a healthier version, use whole wheat flour. You’ll get plenty of iron, calcium, and fiber from a stack of piping-hot whole wheat pancakes.

Fluffy Eggless Pancakes Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2tbs. butter
  • 1 tbs. water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture
  • Optional Ingredients
    • Bananas
    • Blueberries
    • Honey
    • Fresh strawberries
    • Maple syrup

Fluffy Eggless Pancakes Directions

  1. Combine and whisk together dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate 2-cup measuring glass, add milk, vegetable oil, water, and vanilla extra and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and lightly whisk. Avoid over-mixing, even if lumps appear. Set to the side for a few minutes.
  4. Using a large skillet, set on medium-high heat and melt the butter. Once the butter is fully melted, swirl in the pan to cover the entire bottom.
  5. Now, pour the melted butter on top of your pancake mix and add the desired amount of Hemp Oil. This recipe makes 6 large pancakes, enough for two people. So, be sure to add enough Hemp Oil for two. Blend your melted butter and Hemp Oil into the pancake batter.
  6. Measure out ⅓ cup of pancake batter for each pancake; a large skillet should easily accommodate two pancakes at a time. Cook until bubbles appear on the face of the pancake.
  7. Flip and cook the other side for an equal amount of time.
  • Vegan Option: substitute milk with almond, hemp, oat milk or other non-dairy beverage; substitute butter with vegan butter

Pancakes are an undeniably versatile food. So, let your imagination soar when it comes to adding optional toppings! If you’re on a special diet, try the vegan option, with healthy whole grain flour, unrefined sugars, and plant-based oils like Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil.

Healthy Hemp Oil-Infused Recipe

A simple salad (add Hemp Oil to the dressing) and breadsticks on the side make this a complete and satisfying meal.

Homemade Hemp Oil-Based Pesto Sauce Recipe

This recipe makes a good amount of pesto sauce (more than you’ll need for the above recipe). But, don’t fret: the sauce will keep well for at least a week if placed in an airtight container in the refrigerator. In addition, homemade pesto sauce is a good source of phytochemicals and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Homemade Pesto Sauce Ingredients

  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • 3 oz. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 6 cups basil leaves
  • ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture

Homemade Pesto Sauce Directions

  1. Toast pine nuts on a rimmed cookie sheet in a preheated 350° oven until golden brown (about 5 minutes), tossing once halfway through.
  2. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. When no longer hot to the touch, pour into your food processor.
  3. Add the parmesan cheese and garlic and pulse to a fine grind (about 1 minute).
  4. Add the basil and put the lid back on. While running at a low speed, slowly pour in the olive oil, salt, and desired amount of Hemp Oil. In about 1 minute, the pesto should be smooth and bright green.
  5. Use ½ cup in the above recipe and place the remainder in an airtight container. Add a layer of olive oil to prevent browning and refrigerate.

Hemp Oil-Infused Chicken Rice Bowl

This isn’t quite a casserole. However, you’ll combine all your ingredients at the end for a wonderful burst of flavor.

Chicken Rice Bowl Ingredients

  • 1 cup of water
  • Salt and butter
  • 3 tbs. olive oil

Chicken Rice Bowl Directions

  1. In a medium pot, bring the water to a boil, then add the jasmine rice, salt, and butter. Cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Set a large skillet on the stove at medium heat and add the olive oil. Once heated, add the chicken breasts and baby carrots and cook until the chicken pieces are well-done. For the last minute of cooking, sauté the almonds and onions with the chicken and carrots until they are coated with the juices.
  3. Place the rice in a large serving bowl, then add the chicken and carrot mixture on top. Gently drizzle with Hemp Oil and then toss lightly.
  4. Serve immediately.
  • Vegan Option: substitute chicken with fried tofu and white mushrooms; cook rice with vegan butter or olive oil
  • Meat Lovers Option: add (or replace chicken with) cubed beef tenderloin pieces

Accompany this dish with baguette or breadsticks, using a small plate spread with a blend of olive oil and Hemp Oil for dipping.

A Sweet Finish Fit for Kings

You now have Hemp Oil recipes to cover breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However, if you’re like most people, a little sweet treat after dinner is always appreciated and enjoyed. So, we’ve concocted the perfect Hemp Oil dessert for you.

Hemp Oil-Based Shortbread

This is a simple recipe requiring few ingredients and taking less than an hour (including baking) to make. More importantly, you’ll end up with a delicious batch of Hemp Oil-infused shortbread bites that’ll last you for over a week. Of course, you’ll have to refrigerate them in a covered container and protect them from midnight snackers.

Shortbread Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture

Shortbread Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°.
  2. Add together the flour, sugar, and salt. Mix with a whisk or pastry cutter.
  3. Add the butter, rubbing it in with your fingers or cutting it in with the pastry cutter. It will first be crumbly and then gradually form into a ball of cookie dough.
  4. Form the dough into a ball and then flatten it out (either use a rolling pin or your hands) on a flour-dusted surface and cut out some cookies. The dough is fragile. So, if you’re using a rolling pin, roll carefully and gently press simultaneously. Dust the top of the dough with flour so that the rolling pin doesn’t stick.
  5. Place the cookies on a parchment-lined baking tray. Sprinkle a light dusting of sugar over the cookies.
  6. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, then place on a cooling rack.
  7. Using your Hemp Oil dropper, place the same number of drops on each cookie as they’re cooling. They should be cool enough to enjoy in 30 minutes.
  • Vegan Option: substitute butter with vegan butter

Your shortbread recipe should yield about a dozen cookies, each about ¼ inch thick and 1 inch in diameter. By using an equal number of drops for each cookie, you also know precisely how much Hemp Oil each shortbread cookie contains. This Hemp Oil treat is a fitting finale to a great meal. If you’re looking for more treats, these magnificent hemp-infused recipes should fit the bill.

Hemp Oil Infusion Cooking Tips

For the most part, making popular dishes with Synchronicity™ Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil Tincture is as easy as preparing them without. However, the health benefits are unparalleled.

If you’re feeling adventurous, there are only a few things to know before integrating Hemp Oil into your regular cooking routine:

  • Watch the Heat: At about 320°, evaporation occurs. Adding Hemp Oil to sauces after cooking preserves the integrity of the plant compounds.
  • Effects Take Longer: Since you’ll be ingesting your Hemp Oil with food, it will need to pass through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream.
  • It’s a Versatile Oil: Since Hemp Oil blends easily with other oils, include in recipes that require a measure of oil.
  • Lighter Noticeable Effects: The effects won’t be as noticeable as a tincture under the tongue. However, the extra cannabinoids will do wonders for your digestive system.
  • Mixing Alcohol: Hemp Oil doesn’t offset the effects of alcohol. Although Hemp Oil cocktails are growing in popularity, remember to drink responsibly.
