Chocolate Mint Cookies #paleo #vegan #glutenfree #raw GoodGirlGoneGreen.comI am a big sucker for chocolate and mint especially when they are in the form of chocolate mint cookies. Who doesn’t love chocolate and mint? There is just something about that combination that makes me drool and I just can’t get enough.

The two recipes that I tend to whip up quite often are: creamy Chocolate Mint Mousse and Chocolate Mint Smoothie. They are easy to make and all I do is just toss everything in my high powered blender (where to buy) and voila! Amazing minty goodness in a bowl and glass.

At little E’s daycare they were having cookies, and usually their bakes goods are vegan because the chef doesn’t bake with eggs, milk, or butter depending on the recipe. However, this was not the case this week- butter and eggs were in the cookies. And, let’s just say little E is beginning to notice more and more what the other kids are eating. With that said, I need to be prepared for all situations.

Her daycare is nut-free, so my Almond Raisin Cookie recipe was out. What was a vegan-gal like myself to do? I thought of coconut flour, and found this Protein Thin Mint Cookie recipe on Purely Twins (a great blog by the way!) and tweaked it with what I had in the house. It turned out yummy. They are vegan, and paleo-friendly as well as gluten and nut-free! And, the best part you don’t even have to bake them! The perfect cookie, no? Push over Girl Guides here is a new chocolate mint cookie in town!

What is your favorite cookie? Do you have a specific diet you follow that you follow?

Now grab a nice glass of homemade cashew milk, and enjoy these sweet vegan paleo chocolate mint cookies!!

Chocolate Mint Cookies

Yield: 12 cookies

Ingredients

Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and stir.
  2. Shape the batter into a cookie shape. You can use a cookie cutter, or a glass jar like I did to make mini cookies because I don’t own cookie cutters.
  3. Place in the fridge until firm- about an hour.
  4. Once they are firm, you can keep them at room temperature and they will still be hard to the touch.

Notes and Tips

Carob (where to buy) can be used in place of cacao.

Change up the cookie shape with different cookie cutters.
