Vegan Protein Thin Mints

 
I finally found the perfect way to use this (nasty) hemp protein!! I meant to follow a recipe to a T, and of course, it didn’t turn out so I had to tweak it a little. I found this Raw Thin Mint recipe from PurelyTwin’s and thought, hey, what the hell… What’s the worst that could happen? I waste a little cocoa powder and coconut oil? Meh, no sweat. So I gave it a try and had to keep adding ingredients because 98g of coconut oil is a lot! So here’s the recipe…

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp Pure Peppermint Extract
  • 98 g (7 tbsp or about 1/2 cup) Coconut Oil 
  • 24 g (48 tsp or 1 cup) Stevia in the Raw
  • 50 g (10 tsp) Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 100 g (10 tbsp) Hemp Protein Powder

Directions

Mix all ingredients well and separate into 10 g servings. Best kept in the freezer. They actually aren’t too hard to bite if you keep them thin enough. The texture is good and you can barely tell they are mostly made of that yucky hemp powder! 

Serving Size: 10 g

Servings: about 25
