These nutritious cookies have been on my must create recipe list for the longest time!

I’m excited to finally share these low sugar, nourishing cookie bites on The Foodie Affair’s blog.

Yes, you can feel good about eating cookies for a first meal of the day!

These keto breakfast cookies are made with wholesome ingredients like crunchy walnuts, coconut flakes, and coconut oil.

All these ingredients are considered good fats that are 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!

Healthy Breakfast Cookies With Hemp Hearts

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!

  1. Can you leave out the walnuts? If so, would I need to add something else? Love that this uses coconut flour rather than almond flour.

  2. Mine turned out really spread out 🙁 I followed the recipe, except I used honey instead of sugar. Maybe that’s why it was more liquidy? Perhaps I’ll try less oil & more almond flour next time. Any baking advice on this would be appreciated!

    1. Hi Terri, I haven’t tried substituting the hemp seeds for chia. I imagine you can, but the ingredients probably need to be adjusted since chia absorbs moisture. Please let us know how it turns out if you decide to try it.

  3. I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice, So I did some ground cinnamon, ground ginger, freshly crushed cardamom seeds, a freshly ground clove and some fresh grated nutmeg. It smells amazing

  4. When I went to FatSecret and checked each ingredient alone, then added up This is what I got for each cookie based on 14 cookies per batch:
    calories = 120
    total carbs = 3.3
    net carbs = 1.8

    I have found the calculator on MyFitness is not reliable. For one recipe I listed it gave me a ridiculous 40 grams once then over 50 the next time – per serving. Since it was meat based I did my own calculation and it was in the single digits.

  5. These were not to my liking. I made them exactly like stated. Mine were significantly darker in color even before baking but I did use golden sweetener. I didn’t care for the crunch of the hemp seeds, with some bits that wouldn’t chew. The flavor almost reminded me of banana. I wasn’t disgusted, but I didn’t really care for them. And 5 NC seemed like a lot for a small cookie and i was still hungry.

  6. Just made these last night, they are great! And what a great cookie alternative for kids! Having one with my coffee after my keto egg bake this morning.

  7. I found this recipe because I had hemp hearts on hand and was hoping to use it as an oatmeal substitute in a cookie similar to an oatmeal cookie. These were good! I used Sukrin Gold for the sweetener and added Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips too. I ate 3 right before bed and was still in ketosis today, so no issue there. These taste even better this morning now that they have cooled than they did right out of the oven last night. Thanks so much! I will make these again. I might try butter to see if it’ll get a little crispy. 🙂

  8. I tried this recipe. Turned out to be amazing. Used erythritol. Having real cookies for the first time after starting keto.
    Thank you!

  9. Tried recipe – I think they taste great. I didn’t have walnuts so I used roasted macadamia nut that I had on hand. I added 2 T of Lily’s chocolate chips and toasted the coconut before adding to batter. I wanted to send a pic but don’t see where one can be added. Thank you for the recipe.

  10. The nutrition facts are confusing (300grams of carbs is not keto). Can you clarify please what the nutrition for one serving is-thank you

  11. Just LOVED this recipe! I tweaked it a bit and added the recipe to Livestrong where I got different macro calculations but the ratios were just right! I doubled the recipe, added a small amount of cream of tartar and xanthum gum (I was afraid of it falling apart) and used pecans instead of walnuts. The results were simply perfect! My husband swore it was an oatmeal cookie and told me not to tell him what was in it because he might not like it as much! I also used a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves because I didn’t have pumpkin spice so I improvised with proportions I like. The end result was better than I could have expected!!

    1 cookie – 118 calories
    Total fat 9g
    Saturated fat 5g
    Carbohydrates 5g
    Fiber 2g
    Sugar 1g
    Protein 4g

    THANK YOU!!!

    1. How much cream of tartar and xanthum gum did you use, please?
      Would love to try that addition.

  12. My husband and I are addicted to these things! One cookie gives me enough energy for my morning workout. Oh, I also add .25 cup of lily’s chocolate chips:)

    Thanks for sharing!

      1. Can I sub almond flour instead of covonut and eliminate the shredded coconut? I like the oil but not the flour/shredded in coconut!!

  13. I’m counting macros
    Do I divide the carbs by the number of cookies for carbs, fat and protein per serving?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Not sure where you live, but my local Walmart carries hemp hearts in the baking section, with the almond and coconut flours!

    2. Don’t know if anyone still needs to know, but Walmart has hemp hearts, but I found them in the aisle with supplements and vitamins, not in the grocery section. Chia seeds were there too.

  14. I love the texture of these cookies.
    They are wonderful by themselves however… I tried one with a little tiny schmear of cream cheese on top. Oh yeah! Thanks for the recipe!

  15. How many cookies makes a serving? Do you need to refrigerate them?
    Thanks for the recipe. I can’t wait to try it!

  16. Made them – love them! I used pecans because that is what I had. Thinking about a chocolate version now 🙂 Thank you!

  17. Is it ok to heat hemp hearts at this high a temperature for this length of time? Have read on numerous sites that using hemp seeds at high temp can destroy their nutritional value and release unhealthy fats?

  18. 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.
