We have made it to day 6 of Choctoberfest. I can feel my stretchy pants getting tighter so what a better time than now to add a little extra good to my diet, so I won’t be eating salads and veggies for every meal next week to detox from all the yummy sugar and chocolate goodness. After I received my box I thought I better educate myself first…Just Hemps Foods 50% protein powder is “a plant based protein powder that is rich in essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals”. Don’t worry there is no THC in this product and it is gluten, soy and lactose free!! How could I go wrong adding this to my cookies?? The answer… I couldn’t!!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside while you make your cookie dough.
2 cups flour
1/4 cup Just Hemp Foods 50% Hemp protein powder
If you choose to use just flour, use 2-1/4 cups flour and omit the hemp protein powder)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup imperial sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract
About 4 tbsp Seedless blackberry Jam
3/4 cup Ghirardelli bitter sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup Ghirardelli white chocolate chips
In a medium size bowl combine all of your dry ingredients and set aside for a moment.
In bowl of a mixer place butter, Imperial sugar and brown sugar, cream together until combined and fluffy. Add egg plus extra yolk vanilla and almond extract and beat until combined well. Add dry ingredients that you have already mixed together in a bowl to bowl of mixer and beat until combined. Stir in your bitter chocolate chips and white chips.
Separate your dough into quarters drop jelly into each quarter of dough in about 1 tsp dallops so you have about a Tbsp of jam in each quarter of dough. “Cut” in the jam to your dough with a butter knife, you do not want to stir the jam in because your cookie dough will just turn purple you want sort of a swirl.
Drop cookie dough onto your parchment lined cookie sheets using a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop. Bake at 350 degrees 12-16 minutes. Remove from oven once baked and then slide onto cooling racks to cool completely. Your cookies are baked when they are slightly golden around the edges.
My Cookie jar is now full and happy and I am satisfied knowing that my boys are getting a little of the good stuff with them.
Thank you so much Just Hemp Foods!!
