  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract, or more to taste
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place almond flour, cocoa powder and salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  • Fold in coconut oil, maple syrup and peppermint extract until evenly incorporated.
  • Allow batter to rest 10 minutes in refrigerator.
  • Roll 1 Tbsp of cookie batter between palms of hands to form a ball, and place on baking sheet. Press to flatten into approximately an 1/8-inch-thick disk.
  • Bake 10 minutes, and then cool a few minutes on baking sheet before removing to a wire rack.
  • Melt half the chocolate chips in a double boiler. Take off heat and fold in remainder of chocolate to temper the mixture.
  • Dip cookies in chocolate and place back on parchment-lined baking sheet. Or you can drizzle chocolate on top of cookies.
  • Refrigerate cookies 15 minutes to set chocolate coating.
