  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/4 cup whole ground flax meal
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • In your sauce pan boil water. Then, place cauliflower florets in your steamer basket and put it in the saucepan. Then, cover and let it steam for a few minutes or until cauliflower softens.
  • Thereafter, take out the steamer basket from the boiling water and let cauliflower florets cool down completely.
  • In the meanwhile preheat oven at 375 degree Fahrenheit and prepare a cookie sheet with a greased parchment paper.
  • Now, in your food processor combine all the ingredients including the steamed cauliflower.
  • Then, process it for few seconds until well combined. (Do not over grind the batter).
  • Lastly, fold in chocolate chips.
  • Now, with a cookie scoop place the cookies on the prepared cookie sheet with ¼ inch gap between each cookie.
  • Then, place the cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven and let it bake for 35 minutes.
  • Take out the cookie sheet and let it cool completely. (The cooling may take about 20 minutes). If not cooled properly the cookies may crumble.
  • Lastly, with the help of a spatula ease out the cookies from the cookie sheet and place them on a plate or storage box. Just make sure to place the baked cookies separately so they don’t stick together. 


  • These cookies are soft cake like texture. Therefore, handle these cookies with spatula and enjoy with a spoon/fork. If picking up with hands, be gentler.
  • Make sure to completely cool down the cookies before easing them out from the cookie sheet.
  • When you bite on the cookies the inside may look slightly wet but that is normal. It won’t taste raw and have delicious chocolatey flavor.
  • Feel free to store these cookies in the refrigerator in an air tight container for 2-3 days.
