Chocolate Mint Cookies (with or without the mint!)

I’m on a bit of a mint kick right now, so I felt like coming up with a chocolate mint cookie recipe. If you’re not a big mint fan, you can eliminate it and just make chocolate cookies!

Recipe: Chocolate Mint Cookies

1/2 cup butter (softened) or coconut oil

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup melted coconut cream concentrate

1 tsp peppermint oil or extract

2 eggs

2.5 cups almond flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat together the butter (or coconut oil), syrup, vanilla, coconut cream concentrate, peppermint extract and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and beat until combined. Scoop onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 10-12 minutes, until firm on the outside. Let cool on wire racks and store in refrigerator for best results.

    Is there a way you could add the nutritional info in your recipes? Like protein, fiber, fat, carb, salt, etc.? Also, have you thought about adding fiber to your recipes? I use flaxseed meal or oat bran. Love your recipes! Hadn’t thought of using almond flour… Also, can you tell me what Coconut Cream is?

    Thanks,

      I may do that in the future, but right now it’s just too much additional work. I would love to do it at some point, though! I haven’t thought about adding fiber to my recipes, but I’ll consider that as well. As for the coconut cream concentrate, you can click on “coconut cream concentrate” in the post, and it will take you to the product and description. Hope that helps!
