Chocolate Orange Ganache Protein Cookies are firm from the outside and melts in mouth flawlessly. They are baked to perfection for a crunchy and chewy texture. The fresh ingredients and homemade protein powder makes these cookies absolutely desirable. These are perfect breakfast or pre workout snack cookies. However, cookies are cookies and I believe in enjoying them for a dessert as well…..because…I love guilt free desserts [ vegan + GF + paleo ] kiipfit.com

For chocolate orange ganache

  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (tetra pack)
  • 1 tsp coconut/olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp fresh orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp pure orange extract

For the cookies

  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 medium banana mashed
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup


  • In your microwavable bowl combine the entire ganache ingredients and microwave it for 1 minute.
  • Then take out the bowl and whisk it nicely until fluffy. Later let it sit so it thickens slightly.
  • In the meanwhile, preheat the oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit and prepare a cookie sheet by placing a parchment paper on it.
  • Then in your food processor combine hemp seeds and chia seeds. Grind them into powdered form. (Do not make dough out of these).
  • In a large mixing bowl combine almond flour and powdered seeds. Then mix well with hands rubbing them at intervals so that there are no lumps. Make sure the flour is well combined without lumps and is dry. Now, add baking powder and salt. Mix it with a spoon extremely well.
  • Now add whisked ganache, mashed banana and maple syrup.
  • Thereafter, whip it nicely with a spatula. Now, with the help of a cookie scoop place the cookies on the cookie sheet. (Do not flatten them ) The cookies will take their own shape while baking. 
  • Place the cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven and bake it for 30 minutes.
  • Lastly, take out the cookie sheet and let the cookies cool in the cookie sheet itself. The cookies must cool down completely or else will stick to the parchment paper. Also once the cookies are cooled the outside will become crispy and inside with be soft and chewy. 


  • These cookies tastes crispy from the outside and soft melt in mouth from inside if enjoyed the same day.
  • Store these cookies in an air tight glass jar for up to a week. However, these cookie may soften a bit but will retain its firmness and crunchy texture.
  • If you like a strong flavor of chocolate orange ganache then feel free to whip up extra ganache and drizzle generously over the cookies. Then, let the cookies sit for a while until ganache thickens. Or else you may enjoy them as plain or drizzle melted vegan chocolate.
