PALEO MINT CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES
(GRAIN FREE, GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, PALEO)
It’s no secret that chocolate is my favorite food. I simply could not live without it (I gave it up for Lent one year and it was tough!). I love the many delicious chocolate flavor combinations: chocolate and pumpkin, chocolate and strawberries, and chocolate with mint. These cookies are soft, pillowy, and bursting with a chocolate mint flavor. I decided to use dark chocolate chunks in this recipe because there’s nothing better than a big bite of melty chocolate. These cookies require one mixing bowl, about 10 minutes to throw together, and they’re sure to be a hit!

Course: Dessert, Snack
Servings: 15 cookies
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup smooth almond butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1.5 tsp vanilla
2 TBL coconut sugar
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup + 1 TBL dark cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp mint extract (a little goes a long way)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
Dash sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add melted coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and coconut sugar to a mixing bowl. Combine.
Add in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Add in dark chocolate chunks. Refrigerate dough for 10-15 minutes.
Form dough into small balls (press down slightly on top of dough balls, they don’t spread much) and place 2″ apart on parchment lined baking sheet. Add more chocolate chunks and sea salt on top if desired.
Bake 8-10 minutes. Mine were perfect at 9 minutes. Enjoy!
