Cocoa Mint Santa Cookies

The Season of Christmas is here, and the baking of goodies has begun. Baking Gluten Free around the holiday's can become a chore, and not exciting! However this Almond flour cookie will have all begging for more, and yes will even bring the fun back to baking for the Holidays!!!!

  • 2 1/2 cup of almond flour ( Honeyville) Bobs Red Mill won't work….
  • 1 1/2 cup of cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda and powder
  • 1/4 tsp of kosher salt
  • 1 stick of butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp of Peppermint extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup of Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup of Coconut Sugar

Pre- heat Oven to 350.
Mix all Dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Mix Butter, eggs, extract and Maple Syrup together.
Combine wet mix and stir into dry mix.

On parchment paper drop about a tablespoon for each cookie, and cook at 350 for 8 minutes, or until done. This is Almond Flour, so I would recommend keeping a close eye on the cookies, as not to burn!

Serve with Coconut Mint Chocolate Milk, for Santa, and his little helpers!

Happy Holidays!!!!

  1. Idea! Top with crushed hard peppermint sticks or candies! Colorful and extra tasty!
