Thin Mints

Submitted by: Regina Galbick


1 c. almond flour, organic
1/4 c. coconut flour, organic
1/2 c. coconut sugar, organic
1/4 c. cacao powder, raw, organic
1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
1 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
1 stick butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
12 oz. chocolate chips, dark, 70%, raw, organic
1 tsp. peppermint extract, organic


Sift together the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt, and stevia until mixed. Add in the egg, butter, and 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract and mix until it forms a dough. Roll the dough into a log on some parchment paper and put in the refrigerator or freezer to chill. Preheat your oven to 375°F. When the dough is solid, using a sharp knife, cut out cookies that are roughly 3/8-inch thick. Lay the cookies out on a baking tray. They can be placed close together because they don't really spread. There should be about 24 cookies. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool until they’ve hardened. Make the coating by melting the chocolate chips and mixing in the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract. One by one, dip the cookies into the melted chocolate to coat both sides. The chocolate should be fairly runny and only coat in a small layer. If the chocolate is thicker, heat it up until it melts more. Lay the cookies onto parchment paper and refrigerate to fully harden. These will keep 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

  1. In the first sentence of the recipe, it says to add Stevia.
    In the list of ingredients, there is no amount of Stevia listed.
    How much Stevia?
