Gluten Free Thin Mints

Recently, Princess P and I made Paleo Thin Mints inspired by the Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. I found the recipe over at Elana's Pantry. If you have never checked out her site, stop by and see all the amazing food she has created! She has a wonderful selection of Paleo and Gluten free recipes. Everyone we have tried has been yummy!


Ingredients

1 cup blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon coconut flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 baking soda
2 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon mint extract (original recipe called for peppermint, but we had mint in the house)
1 package of dark chocolate chips
1/ teaspoon mint extract

Directions

In a food processor, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda.
Pulse the butter, honey, and mint extract until a dough ball forms.
Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, about 1/8 inch thick.
Freeze dough for 15 minutes. Remove from freezer and cut out cookie shapes. Use a small cookie cutter, about 2 inches for best results.
Transfer the cookies to a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 4 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove cookies and cool completely.





Place cookies into the freezer for about 1 hour. Remove from freezer to dip in chocolate!


Melt chocolate chips and mint extract in a small sauce pan over low heat. It doesn't take long to melt the chocolate.


Dip each cookie into the chocolate. Place cookie onto parchment paper and freeze for another hour.


Serve and Enjoy!

Store cookies in the fridge for a crispy cookie!

  2. Hi Monigue!
    This look soooo good! :-)
    Question: We have an almond/nut allergy in our house, would it be okay to substitute white un-bleached flour for the almond flour?
    Thanks for any help and sharing this with us!

    1. I don't see why not. You may need to add a little more flour since almond flour tends to be drier than wheat flour.
      Here's a link to a recipe with regular flour. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/thin-mint-cookies/
      I'm sure my hubby would like them a lot more.
