melt in your mouth hemp macaroons

There is a symbiosis that occurs when making macaroons… they want to be paired with the making of an egg yoke recipe; like hollandaise sauce or egg noodles. The same day I made these I made lovely squash stuffed raviolis and cannelloni with home-made egg noodles and knew that those pasta dough egg whites were destine for great things.

These macaroons are a fail proof recipe that creates  fluffy sticky toasty pillows of coconutty hemp goodness, with just a few easy ingredients:

essential cookie element 3: cookies should be quick and easy, not fussy. Something you can throw together on a whim.

In a stand mixer whip:

the whites of 6 eggs just beyond soft peaks… on the threshold of stiff but certainly not hard peaks.

In a large bowl combine:

1 cup organic cane sugar

2 cups organic fancy shred coconut

1 cup organic hemp hearts

along with a pinch of sea salt and a splash of vanilla

gentally fold  egg white peaks into bowl of coconut, until combined.

Portion cookies on to a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

They are ready when golden brown along the edges and have some highlights of golden bits of top.

thats it.. so very easy so very good.

Punk Rocker Chocolate Drops

I couldn’t decide what to call these fabulously chocolate-y  vegan cookies, but I found the inspirational starting point for this recipe at the post punk kitchen, thus my Punk Rocker Chocolate  title. I tweaked this recipe a bit by taking out the standard wheat flour and replacing it with a blend of Buckwheat /Hemp and Kamut (I posted this as a WF/GF recipe because brown rice flour would be ideal in place of Kamut to keep this GF, however I just ran out and my partner is OK with ancient wheat grains, new discovery on the allergy front… yeah!)

I have a small confession to make… I actually HATE cookies. I know you are thinking no one on the planet hates cookies, and I know this is a true fact, because back in my city life I owned two cookie companies, and I did pretty well catering to the cookie cravings of the rest of the planet. Ok so now you’ll understand that after a decade of  making millions of cookies I don’t actually eat them, crave them, or enjoy them almost ever. Well this morning something happened… the universe has shifted, because I actually ate 3 of these! 3!

This speaks volumes at just how wicked these babies are!

YOU’LL NEED

2 cups organic (gluten free if applicable) Oats

1/2 + 1/3 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup kamut flour (or Rice flour for GF cookies)

1/3 cup hemp flour

2/3 cup cocoa powder

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

pinch of sea salt

1 cup organic cane sugar

1/2 cup hemp seeds

2/3 cup chocolate almond milk (you could use regular)

2/3 cup canola oil

2 tsp pure vanilla

1 cup fair trade dark chocolate chips.

Portion cookies and bake on baking parchment at 350º for  12-16 minutes.(depending on how big you make the cookies) I used a 1 oz mechanical ice cream scoop and yielded 30 super stellar cookies!
