Ingredients
  

  • 1 c Hemp Hearts
  • 1/2 c Cacao or Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 c Almond Flour or Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 c Kidsweet
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla (or Rose water, almond or orange extract, strong coffee, or other flavor of your choice, to taste)
  • 1/2 c coconut oil melted
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1/4 c Almond Milk (more if using coconut flour)

Instructions
 

  • Mix all ingredients together completely.
  • Either put into a shallow oven-safe casserole dish for a brownie-like cake, and let sit for a few minutes; OR, spoon out into thin cookies, place onto a greased cookie sheet, or use parchment.
  • Bake at 350°F for 10-15 minutes if thin, or 20-30 minutes if thick.
  • Let cool, and enjoy!

Notes

The cocoa provides modest amounts of vitamin E, an antioxidant, plus vitamin K, choline, selenium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, and iron. It's a good source of insoluble fiber, and the antioxidents called flavonoids. If you can get cacao, a cold-pressed, raw form of cocoa, it has an even higher antioxidant content.
