1/2 cup coconut or almond milk + 2 tablespoons

3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted Miyokos vegan butter

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup date sugar

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter or sunflower butter

1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract

3 tbsp hemp hearts

1.5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

Large pinch kosher salt

Line a baking sheet with wax paper, parchment or baking mat.

Bring the milk, butter, and cocoa to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in the date sugar until well incorporated. Turn the heat off. Add the peanut butter, vanilla, and salt, and stir. Next, add the oats and hemp seeds and stir to combine.

Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and put them onto the prepared baking sheet. Place the cookies in the fridge until cooled and hardened, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
