  • ¼ cup peanut butter, unsweetened
  • ½ bar unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 3 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk or your plant milk of choice
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup hulled hemp hearts/hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup rolled oats


  • Line a small baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
  • Add the peanut butter, chocolate, maple syrup, and plant milk to a small saucepan.
  • Heat on medium heat, stirring often, until the chocolate is melted and the ingredients are combined. This mixture will be thick!
  • Stir in the vanilla, then add the hemp seeds and oats.
  • Stir it all together until all the oats and hemp seeds are coated in the delicious chocolate peanut butter mixture.
  • Scoop the mix up by heaping tablespoons and form into cookies. Place cookies on the lined baking sheet.
  • When all the cookies are on the baking sheet, stick it in the fridge and let the cookies chill for 15-20 minutes, until they're firm and don't fall apart when you try to shove one in your mouth.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.


You can replace the peanut butter with any not or seed butter; almond, cashew, sunflower seed, tahini, etc.
For sweeter cookies, you can use dark chocolate or chocolate chips in place of the baker's chocolate (2oz or 56 grams).
You can use any plant milk in place of the almond milk; soy, hemp, oat, etc.
The hemp seeds can be replaced with an additional ¼ cup (28g) rolled oats.
