I have the biggest sweet tooth, which means I am usually (read: always) craving something sweet when snack time hits. I am also a chocoholic and always find ways to add chocolate to my healthy snacks. I created these cookies one night when I was craving chocolate and something sweet but was looking for something a little healthier. These cookies satisfy my sweet and chocolate cravings while also giving me a good balance of protein + fibre + healthy fats.
The star of these cookies are Hemp Hearts. Hemp hearts are seeds that have a nutty flavour and are packed with protein, healthy fats, and fibre. I love adding Hemp Hearts to my oatmeal, smoothies, and baked goods.
Another great thing about these cookies is that they are GLUTEN-FREE! These chocolate power cookies are made with a blend of quick oats, Hemp Hearts, and ground flaxseed. Talk about triple threat!
