Preheat oven at 400-degree Fahrenheit and prepare a sheet pan with a greased parchment paper. In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients, mix it well so that there are no lumps and keep it aside.
In a blender combine all the wet ingredients and blend it smooth.
Now, fold in wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whip it nicely until a smooth, thick and sticky batter is formed. It should be a pouring consistency.
Pour the pancake batter on the sheet pan and spread it evenly with the flat side of the spatula. Top it with chopped walnuts and more hemp seeds.
Place it in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for about 15 minutes or until the tester comes out clean. Take it out. If you feel its slightly undone at this stage then let it rest on a flat surface for 2-3 minutes. It will become firmer as it cools down. But do not over bake.
Lastly, cut into desired slices and serve these with lots of maple syrup and fruits of your choice.
