This low carb Holy Crap cookie recipe is especially for Lyle Hartley and Corin and Brian Mullins at Hapi Foods. Yes, you heard me right. I really did say Holy Crap. That’s the name of Hapi Food’s ingenious cereal mix. Holy Crap cereal mix is made with only all natural non GMO ingredients.

The cereal contains organic chia, organic hulled hemp hearts, organic buckwheat, organic cranberries, organic raisins, organic apple bits, and organic cinnamon. The cereal on its own is not sweet, but I added a bit of honey to it and a few other ingredients for low carb Holy Crap cookies that are out of this world.

Did I say out of this world?

Well, for Hapi Foods Holy Crap cereal is exactly that.

Literally.

Their Holy Crap cereal was recently chosen as one of 12 foods approved for travel to the international space station. They were part of a competition to find the best outer space foods for Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield,  NASA astronaut Tom Marshburn, and Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko.

4 Comments on Holy Crap Cookies: a Low Carb Dessert with Honey, Almond, & Coconut

  1. I made these cookies and my kids loved them! I kept having to shoo them away so they wouldn’t eat them all at once. The dough was very dry though and I ended up having to add an extra egg. Was I supposed to add water to the cereal first before I mixed it into the rest of the ingredients?

    • Hi Gi! I’m glad the kids loved the cookies. Holy Crap specifies that you need to soak the cereal to soften it. I didn’t soak the cereal first with water or milk, but I did make the mixed dough sit for more than five minutes to soften the chia seeds in the cereal. You could also try to add a little bit more honey. I usually “grease” my measuring cup before I measure out the honey. This way it pours out fully without sticking to the sides and bottom of the measuring cup. I also used moist coconut flakes and fresh almond flour. I think the brand of almond flour makes a difference,too.

    • We used coconut flakes from Trader Joe’s. They were nice and moist. I’ve been eating my Holy Crap in a bowl of plain yogurt too. It tastes great that way, too. Our baby girl loves Holy Crap with yogurt. The boys are more into the Skinny B. I’ve got a 6 year old that picks raisins out of everything, lol!
