Delicious fudgey chocolate truffle hemp cookies, hard to stop with one.
Baking chocolate cookies has become a routine in my house as two little chocolate lovers are always demanding those. I get bored making their favorite chocolate chips cookies so always look out for new version of chocolate cookies. In order to get new ideas, I borrow books from library for my baking adventures. I like all kinds of baking books, but bread baking book is my favorite.
This recipe is adapted from the recipe for Heart break chocolate truffle cookies in the book “Handmade Baking: Recipes to warm the heart Book” by Karman Siddiuqi. It is a really rich and is a more like a brownie than a cookie, with over dose of chocolate. From the original recipe I reduced the amount of chocolate chips and add hulled hemp seeds. Thus cookies become chocolaty as well as protein rich. Yes Hemp seeds are super protein. They have all the amino acids required to make a protein.
After reading the health benefits of hemp seeds, I remembered my cytology class and protein structure and the name of twenty amino acids. I got some hemp seeds and products from Just Hemp Foods; they are so generous, and also provided with Hemp Seed Oil, Hemp Protein Powder, Hulled Hemp seeds and Toasted Salted Hemp seeds. I when searched about baking with hemp seeds, I came to know Hemp seeds can be used in the place of nuts. If you ask me the taste of hemp seeds, I will say mixture of pine nuts and chopped walnuts.
This chocolate cookie is rich fudgy, and tastes delicious. The added hemp seeds gave a nutty taste and pearl structure. I think you can have this even without heart break. This is just a chocolate lover’s dream. Only thing I found was that the batter was a bit soft, so I kept it in refrigerator before baking it and that gave me little hold while scooping out with spoon. Otherwise it is just simple. Give it try you will enjoy every bite.
