Double chocolate hemp cookies (v)

Today I am coming to 'y'all with a bit of a different recipe, using hemp! I have recently become a huge lover of all things hemp! My absolute favourite, are hemp seeds topped on smoothie bowls, they are so crunchy and delicious! Today's recipe are high protein, high fibre hemp cookies that are healthier than just your average cookie! The addition of hemp flour makes these cookies have a green appearance, however they still taste amazing, I promise!

For these cookies I used organic hemp baking flour from Matakana Superfoods, a leading provider of eco-friendly, organic health products from local, sustainable New Zealand farms! Their range of organic hemp products have only just been released, and are amazing! This hemp baking flour is high in protein and fibre, as well as contains essential fats and vitamins and minerals. It is super versatile and is vegan and gluten free! This recipe is entirely vegan, and can easily be made gluten free!

Double chocolate hemp cookies
1 cup soft brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup soy milk

1 tbsp ground chia or flax seeds
1 cup hemp flour
1 1/2 cup plain flour or plain gluten free flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1. Start by whisking together all of the wet ingredients and the brown sugar.
2. Next add the flours and baking powder and fold together till you have a thick dough. If the mixture is too dry add a splash more soy milk, if too wet add a tablespoon of flour.
3. Fold in the chocolate chips so they fully combine.
4. Place tablespoonfuls of the cookie mixture on a tray lined with baking paper or a silicon baking mat.
5. Bake at 180 degrees C for 15- 20 minutes or until they have expanded and are firm to the touch

Remove, cool and devour! So easy, a healthier alternative to traditional cookies and just as delicious! Perfect to carry to work, school, uni or just to have as an afternoon snack!
