WEEKLY RECIPE – Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Hemp Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Hemp Cookies

I was looking for a gluten free, high protein, low carb, vegan cookie recipe and found the start of this on sweetashoney.co. It doesn’t include the hemp hearts (for the added protein I wanted) or the chocolate but was pretty happy with the outcome. They were a little on the dry side but I’m ok with it given that each cookie has both 7 grams of protein and net carbs and so healthy (for a cookie, that is). I highly recommend dipping them in hemp milk! (Simply blend 4 to 1 water to hemp hearts in a blender and add sweetener to taste – optional).
