One of the most requested recipe ideas I receive weekly are for vegan desserts. There are so many kids these days with food allergies that prevent them from taking part in the myriad of homemade and store bought treats their friends and family get to try which is a total bummer for themselves and their parents.

These Double Chocolate Chip Hemp Heart Cookies are not only massively delicious, but also packed with protein from my secret ingredient: Hemp Seeds

By blending over half of the Hemp Seeds into the mixture with the chocolate chips it gives the cookies almost a nutty flavor. By keeping a handful of them whole as well you get a tiny interesting chewiness within every bite.

Mingle that unique take on Hemp Seeds with vegan or regular chocolate chips (I’m all about options) and you’ve got a mind blowingly delectable chocolate chip cookie!

  1. Delicious cookie! I did not melt the coconut oil, through it in a food processor instead of a blender!
