When I ponder on my favourite childhood memories, the aroma of freshly baked peanut butter cookies inevitably wafts into my mind. My mom’s kitchen was the epicentre of these delectable memories, with me eagerly waiting to “help,” which usually translated to sneaking in a bite of raw dough!
However, as time has whisked by, I’ve come to value not just the taste but also the health quotient of what I eat. That’s what led me to reimagine this timeless classic. By retaining the soul of the original and infusing it with healthier ingredients, these cookies are both a nod to the past and a tip of the hat to present-day health consciousness.

While these cookies tantalize your taste buds, they also bring a bounty of nutritional benefits. The inclusion of hemp seeds is a game-changer. Not only do they introduce a unique, nutty texture to the cookies, but they also infuse them with protein. So, while you’re relishing each bite, know that you’re indulging in a snack that’s as good for your body as it is for your soul.
