Paleo Thin Mints

Okay, I have become very accustomed to my new diet. I don’t miss ‘normal’ food. However, we have now entered Girl Scout cookie season…yeah. I decided to make myself feel better and ate some! No, I did not buy a box, that would kill me. I made a batch of anna-friendly thin mint cookies. Now, Anna is happy and so will you when you make you’re own. 🙂 Enjoy!

Paleo Thin Mints

Ingredients (Thin Mints Cookie):

1 C Almond Flour

1/4 C Coconut Flour

1 Egg

1/2 tsp Salt

¼ C Coco powder

3 Tbsp Honey or Agave

2 Tsp Peppermint extract

1/8 C Walnut Oil

Ingredients for Coating:

1 C dark chocolate chips (over 60% or Enjoy Life brand)

1 tsp peppermint extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Take all the ingredients for your cookies and mix them together. Form into a dough. Take dough form in a ball and place on parchment paper. Roll out your dough into a thin flat sheet. Using a cookie cutter (or a small cup) cut out as many cookies as you can. I made about 15 cookies. Place on parchment paper and bake in oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool.

Once cookies have cooled, take chocolate chips and heat them in microwave (30 seconds at a time) until melted. Add oil and extract, mix. Dip cookies into chocolate and place on wax paper. Once all coated, place in refrigerator until chocolate has harden. Remove and Eat up!!!
