A Better Option Hemp Protein Chocolate Chip Cookie

I took these chocolate chip cookies to a New Year’s party and they were a huge hit! Sneaking in the goodness of hemp’s plant based protein and a few more wholesome ingredients turns an ordinary chocolate chip cookie into an awesome yummy better for you chocolate chip cookie. Each serving provides 7g of complete protein; plus a good source of dietary fiber and iron. You can treat yourself to a bit of indulgence without all the guilt by adding our hemp protein to your other favorite baked goods recipes. Just substitute ½ the flour called for in your recipe with hemp protein powder. It’s mild nutty flavor lends a nice taste and good nutrition.

Who doesn’t love fresh baked warm cookies? Here’s a small batch baking idea. Set aside ½ to 2/3 the batter mix (or desired amount). Roll batter into a 2” log, wrap up and store in the freezer. When ready to bake more…

Cut ½ to ¾ “ thick slices of the desired number of cookies you want from the frozen log.

Place on cookie sheet and let stand while your oven preheats to 375 F. Bake 9 to 11 minutes.
