Prep: 45Cook: 15Total: 1 hour
Yield 40 cookies 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  3. Add in coconut oil, maple syrup and peppermint extract. Mix until well combined.
  4. Chill dough in fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Roll dough out between two sheets of parchment or wax paper until 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Use a mason jar lid, shot glass, or linzer cookie cutter to cut circles. Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Continue process until all dough has been used.
  8. Bake cookies for 12 minutes. Let cool completely.
  9. While cooling, melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in 30 second increments in the microwave. Once completely melted, add in peppermint extract.
  10. Lay cookies on a cooling rack and place on top of baking sheet. Pour chocolate over all cookies. Alternatively, dip each cookie in chocolate on both sides. I prefer the pouring over method for ease!
  11. Let cookies cool either on counter or in fridge.
