Chocolate Chia Seed Individual Cookies

Hello Lisa Lately readers!

We are Lori and Michelle and we blog over at purelytwins. We are honored to be writing a guest posts for Lisa.

A little bit about us… we love to create fun and quick recipes. It is a passion of ours really. We can make any excuse to get in the kitchen to play around with ingredients. We also watch our sugar intake due to skin issues. But we also have big sweet teeth so making fun and low-sugar desserts is something we like to do.

And after making our 8 minute cookies that serve two (that was a pinterest inspiration) we knew we had to create other options for that recipe.

We received several requests for egg-free, grain-free, and low-sugar (stevia) based recipes.

So off to the kitchen we went. Check out some of our other quick single serving cookie recipes here.

Now these cookies are not like your typical crunchy cookie. Nope. They are more on the soft side just like our regular protein low-sugar cookies. And if you have baked with stevia before you will understand the texture in these cookies.

The chia seeds help provide a slightly crunchy texture to them. Plus it is a great way to boost your intake of Omega 3s!

Here is how we made our chocolate chia seed individual cookies that are egg and sugar free.

Purelytwins recipe: Individual hemp protein egg-free chia seed cookies

makes 1 large or 2 small cookies


  • 2 tablespoons hemp protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 15-20 drops stevia (*substitutions below)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons solid coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Place raw cookie dough onto a cookie tray. Note it makes 2 cookies or one large cookie.
  3. Baked 350 for 10-13minutes.
  4. And that is it!

*Substitutions: if you don’t want to use stevia you can use 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey and will probably not need the water. You want the batter of these cookies to be moist but thick. And if you don’t want to use hemp protein powder feel free to use your favorite – it might alter the flavor and texture a little. And you can use carob if you can’t have cocoa powder.

About Lisa


  1. Those sound delicious! Unfortunately I don’t have all of those ingredients in my kitchen. But I can oggle from here!

  2. i like individual desserts like these although I dont have hemp powder. Is there a substitute for that?

    • I’m guessing any protein powder or even another flour like brown rice or anything else would work wonderfully! Hemp can be replaced with different flours for sure.

  3. These cookies sound great! Love adding chia seeds into baked goods!

  4. I LOVE that this recipe is for a single serving!! So darn cool :).

  5. I love Purely Twins those gals are incredible! This recipe sounds amazing I sure do love chia seeds! Love + Shine Courtstar

  6. Those look yummy! I will need to head to the store to get most of those ingredients.

  7. Yum, those cookies look delicious! They look like they’d be a little crisp on the outside and really soft and nice on the inside – the perfect type of cookie in my opinion :)

  8. This definitely sounds like my kind of cookie. :)

    I just made this! made it into one super big cookie – tasted great but was a tad bit too crumbly, not sure if i should mix the chia/water ahead so it becomes gel-like before combining the other ingredients as could bind better – or i could try 2 cookies like you did! thanks for the recipe :)

  10. These cookies look wonderful! I’ve never baked with hemp protein, but now I have a good reason to pick some up. I also love the texture chia seeds add to baked goods. Yum!

    Lisa, I hope you’re recovering okay. I’ve been thinking about you! <3 xoxo

    These were amazing!!! Didn’t have stevia so substituted with maple sugar and used a chocolate protein powder instead of hemp! Just what I needed!

  12. YUM! I love the twins and their recipes! Thanks for sharing girls!

  13. Thought this recipe sounded soo good and tweaked it a little to my taste. Posted the (slightly changed) recipe on my blog and shared the love.
    I’m always happy to find something I can use my chia seeds for.
