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

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  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.
