Healthy Chocolate Cacao Hemp Cookies

5 from 2 reviews

A simple and healthy oil free vegan cookie recipe that is the perfect cure for any sweet tooth. With flavors from cacao, hemp, and almonds, these cookies will be a favorite spontaneous snack.




  • 1 cup (128g) of almonds (processed into flour using food processor)*
  • 1/2 cup (58g) hemp seeds
  • 3 tablespoons (21g) cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon Himalayan salt


  • 3 tablespoons (21g) agave
  • 1/4 (50g) cup of water
  • 1/8 (1g) teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Process almonds in a food processor until you get a flour-like consistency. Make sure not to over-process because you’ll end up with almond butter instead.
  2. Add the dry ingredients: hemp seeds, cacao powder, baking soda, salt and process until everything is broken down evenly.
  3. Add the wet ingredients: Agave, apple cider vinegar, and water and process until everything is combined. You should have a sticky batter that’s not really pour-able.
  4. Scoop out the batter one tablespoon at a time and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can leave them as balls, or using a wet spoon, slightly press down to form a cookie shape. The dough will be very sticky so make sure to wet the spoon as needed.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool before serving.


  • For a crunchier cookie – let it bake 25 minutes or longer as needed. At 20 minutes, the cookies are firm on the outside and chewy on the inside.
  • Cookies taste great fresh out of the oven, let them cool down a bit so that they can firm up. They also taste great the next day after spending the night in the fridge. Cookies are crunchier and firmer the next day.
  • I haven’t tested this recipe using store bought almond flour.
