Breakfast Cookies have been on my must create recipe list for the longest time, so I’m excited to share these low sugar, nourishing cookie bites on The Foodie Affair’s blog.

These cookies are great for a first meal of the day because they’re made wholesome ingredients like crunchy walnuts, tasty coconut flakes, and coconut oil, which is one of the good fats recommended on a ketogenic diet

Saturated fats help fill you up, so you won’t need to munch every few hours because you’ll feel satisfied for a longer period!

Keto Breakfast Cookies with hemp seeds, coconut and walnuts should be cooled sightly on a baking rack before storing in an airtight container #keto #lowcarb | www.thefoodieaffair.com

All those ingredients have made several recipes on the blog, but new to my collection is hemp hearts!  Hemp hearts are shelled hemp seeds that taste similar to a sunflower seed, but with the soft texture of a pine nut.

The first time I tried hemp hearts I cooked them the same way you would cook oatmeal and added some fresh berries. The hemp porridge is such a nice alternative to a carbohydrate dense meal like oatmeal.

They also taste great in strawberry coconut smoothies and sprinkled on salads.  They’re perfect over this cabbage salad.

Hemp hearts are low carb, an excellent source of plant protein, nutrient dense with omega-3 essential fatty acids, iron, vitamin E and GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), an Omega-6 fatty acid. One of the superfoods!

Keto Breakfast Cookies are made with nutritious hemp hearts and shredded coconut with a cup of almond milk to start your day #breakfast #healthy #keto | www.thefoodieaffair.com

Hemp hearts add great texture to these cookies and only 5 net carbs per cookie!  Chewy, satisfying and a great way to fuel your body as a first meal!

    I have never tried using hemp hearts in a recipe. Do you find them at a health food store or in the regular grocery store? I need to put this ingredient on my grocery list.
