These Peanut Butter Hemp Seed Cookies have become a staple in my weekly food prep. They are SO easy to whip up…just one bowl, one measuring cup and a spoon! And they’re delicious and full of heart-healthy fats.
Over the past few years, I’ve fallen in love with hemp seeds! They pack such a powerful nutrient punch and they’re so easy to mix into just about everything as an easy way to add things like iron, magnesium, omegas and protein.
Peanut Butter Hemp Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies
There are a few ways you can change things up with these cookies. I’ve made them with almond butter and they came out great AND tried them with maple syrup…which changes the texture a bit but they’re still good. These are basically like those peanut butter cookies made with just peanut butter, sugar and eggs….except I upped the protein, reduced the sugar and added some fiber with the oats. I call that a win.
Oatmeal Hemp Seed Breakfast Cookies
Want to make these an even better choice for breakfast? Swap the chocolate chips for dried fruit like raisins or dried blueberries. You could also add some nuts like slivered almonds or chopped walnuts for extra healthy fats
Where to Buy Hemp Hearts
As far as hemp seeds go, they’re also called hemp hearts and Manitoba Harvest is my favorite. I buy them in a giant bag at Costco because we go through them so fast but you can find them in most grocery stores (check the bulk bins if you have them) or grab them online from Amazon. (aff link)
