We wanted to address some of the questions we received : 

Lucy asked –  Do you heat the coconut oil first?
Yes. It is best to have the coconut oil in liquid form. Remember to slowly add it in.
She also asked – are you both vegetarian???
No. Our diet now is pretty much open to most foods.
Julie asked – Is hemp protein candida friendly?
We believe it since it is a protein source and not a really a carb source.
Erika asked – How many would be a serving?
For us we normally have two.

  1. So good!
    No stevia for me so I made these with maple syrup. I also used carob instead of cocoa.
    I always loved my girl scout thin mints so these are an excellent treat! Plus my husband passes on the mint/chocolate combo so I don’t have to share. Maybe I will make him the variation with almond extract…

  2. These sound great! I love the combination of chocolate and mint.

  3. These look awesome and so easy! I’ve been looking for ways to use up my hemp protein!

  4. Ive never ever used protein powder. What can replace it? Or is it a must in these cookies?
    I have all the other ingredients.

    1. not really sure what is the best replacement for protein powder in this recipe, you could try using carob or mesquite flour or almond flour (not sure how it would do)

    2. Hey!
      I didn’t have hemp protein powder at home either so I tried 1/4 of a cup of Great lakes Collagen and 1/2 of a cup of almond flour with 8 tbs of coconut oil. This was my first time making the recipe so I don’t have much to compare it to but I thought that they turned out AWESOME!!! Great texture and taste! Hope that helps!

  6. Love the simplicity! I’ll be trying them soon for sure! Thanks, ladies! 🙂

  7. Well, it’s confirmed – I’m Miss Recipe Botcher. How could I mess something as simple as this up? XD Only me! 😛 I made two mistakes:

    1) I used a very old liquid SweetLeaf stevia that was kind of white-y. I don’t know why, but it was really concentrated and even though I used the right amount it sweetened way too much.

    2) I used the amount for peppermint extract but with the DoTerra essential oil instead, so it’s way too minty.

    I have them in the freezer right now. I’m both looking forward to and fearing trying them, lol.
