One-Bowl Chocolate Power Cookies

Recipes

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!

One cookie provides you with:

  • 5g of protein

  • 2g of fibre

  • 11g of carbohydrates

  • 5g of unsaturated fat

These cookies are:

  • Packed with protein

  • Fibre filled

  • Gluten-free

  • Have healthy fats (Omega 3 & 6)

Want to make them double chocolate power cookies? Add in a handful of dark chocolate chips.  Try these when a craving for something sweet hits or for breakfast on-the-go!
