Now, I know my memory tends to be a bit dodgy, but, y’all I didn’t make these gluten-free Chocolate Chip Hemp Cookies today thinking it was Valentine’s Day.

And, nope, I didn’t make these for Heart Health month and forget to post them.

I made these cookies in the month of May as a reminder to myself that even though February, the month filled with heart-love and heart-healthy gluten free blueberry cookies, turmeric salmon and delicious quinoa and veggies, has come and gone, I need to be making ticker-friendly treats year round!

As I make nutbutter chocolate chip cookies often, I try my best to healthy-fy them somehow. Sometimes I throw in some beets into them, other times I leave out the sugar, and sometimes I even add in protein!

And today is no exception. Today, I added in some hemp hearts into my nutbutter chocolate chip cookie mix.

While I’m no nutritionist, I will refer you to this site to read up on the benefits of hemp hearts. All I’ll say is that they have a reputation of contributing to heart health and so I figured why not!

These gluten-free, Chocolate Chip Hemp Cookies are no overly sweet, though you could add in 3 or more tablespoons of coconut sugar to the mix – or even, brown sugar, if you’d like.

Now, the decorations are optional. My daughter recently brought home some red fondant and she helped me make the variety of little hearts y’all see here. I melted some chocolate and added in the little heart beats for dramatic effect.
