Ingredients

Chocolate Cookies

  • 2 Cups Super Fine Almond Flour
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Cacao (reduce to 1/4 cup if using cocoa)
  • 1 TBSP Butter, room temp
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 TBSP Honey

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 batch Honey Chocolate
  • 4-6 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (or 1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract)

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine all cookie ingredients and blend until ball forms.

  2. Separate dough into 2 balls and roll out each, one at a time, between 2 sheets of wax paper until 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick. 

    The thinner the dough, the crispier the cookie.

  3. Using a 1 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut dough and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

    Continue to combine and roll all dough until gone.

    NOTE: If the dough starts sticking to the wax paper, get fresh paper. You may need to change with every rolling.

  4. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, or until firm and slightly browned.

    Allow to cool completely.

  5. In a small bowl, take honey chocolate and add peppermint. Mix well. Lay cookies in chocolate one at a time. 

    Flip with a fork and remove. Place on wax paper to solidify.

  6. Store at room temperature or in the fridge/freezer, depending on your preference. 

    Good up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
