Servings: 12 cookies
- 1 cup almond flour blanched works best (4 oz, 113 g)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour (28 g)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup granulated sweetener of choice I used erythritol for low-carb, coconut sugar is good for paleo
- 4 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
- 3 oz dark chocolate I used Lindt 85% dark
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C)
In a medium bowl, mix dry ingredients together, making sure to remove all clumps.
In a microwave-safe bowl, add butter and 2 oz. of the chocolate. Microwave in 20 second bursts until melted, stirring after each burst. Be sure not to overheat or the chocolate will burn.
Chop remaining 1 oz. of chocolate into small chunks while the melted chocolate cools for a few minutes.
Add melted butter and chocolate to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
Add in mint extract, eggs and apple cider vinegar. Once well-mixed, add in chocolate chunks and mix once again.
Spoon onto cookie sheet by the tablespoon-full. Flatten slightly. Be sure to leave at least an inch in between the cookies because they will spread out.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. Do not overbake, or they will easily burn. The cookies may look underdone when you take them out, but they will harden up as they cool.
Note: depending on the coconut flour you use, the cookie dough may become too dry. If this happens, try adding an egg to the mixture to make it stickier.
