Chewy Chocolate Paleo Peppermint Cookies

Introducing the yummiest cookies to date! They taste like if a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie was to be blown up in to a bigger, softer, and more decadent cookie! You won't wanna miss these for sure!


You guys, these cookies...🙌🏼 I could seriously live off the cookie dough itself I

think--it's THAT good!! They're chewy, BIG, and super flavorful, but also pillowy,

soft, and light - they don't sit like a dense brick in your stomach, if you know what I mean.



I remember the day I recipe tested for these. I felt like baking, but was scared

I'd fail the recipe, and just end up wasting all my precious ingredients. Thank

goodness I went for it, because these beautiful babes were born! Lol!



Moral of that little story? Be bold, and be brave! Because maybe you'll end up creating

something amazing...like these cookies! Hehe. Recipe below!







Chewy Chocolate Paleo Peppermint Cookies

- Makes 12-14 cookies -

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups of blanched almond flour

  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/4 tsp pink salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter, softened

  • 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar

  • 2-3 Tbsp pure maple syrup

  • 2 large pasture-raised eggs, room temp

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract (add 1/4-1/2 tsp more if desired!)

  • Paleo dark chocolate, melted (optional)

  • Crushed candy cane pieces (optional!)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large bowl, with an electric hand mixer, cream butter and coconut sugar together until fluffy and lighter in color (1-2 minutes.)

  2. Once fluffy, beat in maple syrup until combined. Then add in eggs one at a time, and beat well. Lastly add in vanilla and peppermint extract. Mix to combine!

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Once mixed, sift your dry ingredients into your larger bowl of wet, and mix (on low speed at first!) until a dough forms.

  4. Chill dough in fridge for a few hours. Overnight is best!

  5. Once dough is chilled and stiff, preheat oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a rubber baking mat. Take heaping tablespoon pieces of dough (that, btw, taste like Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies...🤤🙌🏼) and place onto your mat, press down to flatten well, and bake in your oven for 13 minutes.

  6. Once done, let them cool for a few minutes on the pan, and then transfer to a cooling rack to finish. You can totally just eat them as is now (they taste great!) or you can melt chocolate, dip them in, and then top with crushed candy cane (if you’re extra...like me..! 😋)

Enjoy!! Recipe created by me.
