Hemp Protein Peanut Butter Cookies

I LOVE these cookies, honestly I crave them! They're really crumbly, very peanut buttery, not too sweet and I love the flavour that the hemp adds to it. Also given I made up this recipe, they are low carb and sugar free, also vegan actually!

Peanut butter drizzle by me


  • ¾ cup Hemple Hemp Seed Protein
  • ½ cup ground flax seeds
  • ¾ cup almond meal
  • 2 tablespoons crystalised stevia (I use Nuvia)
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter 
  • 70g dark chocolate, chopped into chunks (I use 90% or 100%)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a tray with baking paper. 
  2. In a large bowl combine the hemp protein, flax seeds, almond meal, stevia and salt. 
  3. Add coconut oil and peanut butter and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. You may need to finish it off with your hands. 
  4. Add in the chocolate chips. The dough will be crumbly but will come together eventually. 
  5. Take tablespoons of the dough, shape into cookies with your hands and place on the baking tray. Use a fork to imprint them if you’d like. Bake in the oven for 18 minutes. 
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before serving.
