We're always on the lookout for new, healthy ingredients to give you truly nutritious recipes every time. So today, we want to show you how to make wholesome breakfast cookies with hemp seeds.
Our combo of shelled hemp seeds, ground flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds and oats means you'll have a nourishing cookie bursting with healthy fats, plant-based proteins and fibres.
You can find hemp seeds either whole or, more commonly, shelled. The hulled seeds are more tender and less bitter yet still loaded with many nutrients. Compared to the whole ones, they have fewer fibres, though, as the outer shell is removed during the processing.
Hemp seeds are incredibly high in omega-3 essential fatty acids and complete plant-based proteins. Pairing them with flaxseeds, another great source of omega-3, means you'll get almost 80% of your RDI for omega-3 fats in a single cookie. Awesome!
For an even healthier recipe, we made them both vegan and sugar-free, swapping butter with applesauce and using only pitted prunes. We soaked the prunes and then blitzed them with milk into a naturally sweet paste with a lovely caramel-like flavour.
A serving of 3 cookies covers 23% of your RDI for proteins and 44% RDI for fibres, all in just 100 calories per biscuit. So, grab your kitchen apron and let's get ready to bake these super healthy hemp cookies!
