Ingredients

  • 2 cup almond flour
  • cup cacao powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted and cooled, plus 1 tablespoon for the melted chocolate
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract divided
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix the almond flour, cacao powder, and baking soda in a bowl; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, maple syrup, and ½ teaspoon peppermint extract until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Mix well until no flour clumps remain.
  • Roll out the dough on a piece of parchment paper for easy clean up to about ½ inch in thickness. You can use a rolling pin for this or a glass bottle you have in the fridge.
  • Use a 2 inch circular cookie cutter to circles out of the dough. You can also use the lid of a spice jar as a "cookie cutter". Transfer each cookie to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in oven for 8 - 10 minutes. Let cool completely before coating in chocolate.
  • Melt your chocolate chips with the coconut oil in a skillet over low heat (or use a double boiler). Transfer the melted chocolate to a shallow bowl and stir in the remaining ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract. Using a cookie tool or a fork, dip each cookie into the bowl until fully submerged. Lift the cookie up and let the excess chocolate drip off. Slowly scrap a fork on the underside of the cookie to remove the excess chocolate (this prevents a pool of chocolate from forming when we place the cookie on a baking sheet). Place each cookie back on a baking sheet. Once all cookies are coated, place the baking sheet in the fridge so the chocolate can set, about 20 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate has set, you can place the cookies in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for 3 months.

Notes

Peppermint extract : Make sure you're using peppermint extract and not mint.  Mint extract can give off a taste that resembles spearmint gum or toothpaste, not a delectable chocolate coated cookie.
Maple syrup substitute : This can be substituted for honey or agave.
