Double Chocolate Mint Cookies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Chocolate and peppermint are a match that's just made to be! These cookies are soft and chewy, with the addition of cacao nibs for just a bit of crunchiness. With a glass of almond milk for dunking, they're the midnight snack you'll be craving all winter long.

Double Chocolate Mint Cookies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • 1 1/5 cups gluten-free rolled oats, processed into flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract, or 1/8 teasppon pure peppermint essential oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons almond milk, as required

  2. In another bowl whisk together the flax egg, coconut oil, almond butter, and peppermint extract.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until mixed. If the dough feels dry, add 1-2 tablespoons almond milk. Fold in the raw cacao nibs.

A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends never part.
