 Ingredients List

  • Dry Ingredients
  • 1 cup + 1/4 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup good quality cocoa powder
  • Dash himalayan sea salt
  • Wet Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • Chocolate Coating
  • 1 cup dark chocolate
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, or more as needed


In a bowl combine dry ingredients followed by wet ingredients. Make sure the butter is softened and at room temperature before adding it in. Use a fork to mix the dry and wet ingredients together until the butter is well incorporates and you have formed a pliable dough.
Roll the dough into a ball and wrap it in parchment paper. Place the dough in the refrigerator and let chill for 30-45 minutes.
While dough is chilling, pre-heat the oven to 350 ℉.
Once dough has chilled, place it onto a piece of parchment paper. If the dough is soft, sprinkle additional tapioca flour onto the parchment before placing the dough onto it.
Place a second sheet of parchment paper over the dough. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough until it is 1/4 inch thick. Make sure not to roll it any thinner. Thin dough will very be hard to lift. Use an off-set spatula to make the dough easier to lift.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out cookies and gently lift them with a spatula to place them onto a sheet-tray lined with parchment paper (if dough is very soft roll it out and place it back into the refrigerator for an additional 10 minutes).
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove and let cool completely on a cooling rack.
Over a double boiler, melt chocolate and coconut oil. Once melted, add in peppermint extract. You can add more extract to taste, if you want the cookie to be extra minty!
Using a spoon, dip cookies into the chocolate until fully coated and place back on the parchment paper. If the dipping chocolate is thick, add additional melted coconut oil to thin it out! Let chill in the fridge for at least 10 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
