Paleo GRAIN-FREE THIN MINT COPYCATS (A.K.A. GRASSHOPPER COOKIES)

If you haven’t heard, Girl Scout cookies have GMOs (genetically modified organisms). These grain-free, dairy-free Thin Mint Copycats don’t. Seriously, it was just like biting into one of THESE grasshopper cookies, but without any of THESE nasty ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 2

    cups almond flour

  • 1

    cup tapioca flour or arrowroot starch

  • 1/2

    cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1

    tsp baking soda

  • 3/4

    tsp salt

  • 1

    egg

  • 1/2

    cup pure maple syrup

  • 1/3

    cup melted coconut oil

  • 1/2

    tsp peppermint extract + 1/2 tsp peppermint extract, separated

  • 2

    (10 oz packages) Enjoy Life chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, oil, syrup and 1/2 tsp peppermint extract. Stir into dry ingredients until combined. Scoop out about a TBSP or so of dough, roll in hands into a ball, then flatten. Tip: If you want the cookie crunchy all the way through, make them on the thin side. If you want a bit of softness in the middle, don’t flatten them TOO much. Bake in oven for 10 minutes. While those are baking, add chocolate chips and 1/2 tsp peppermint extract to double boiler and melt. Once melted, remove from heat and let cool partially. Remove cookies from oven and let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet before removing to wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, carefully dip the cookies in the melted chocolate and place back onto parchment-covered baking sheet. Place in fridge or freezer to chill. These taste AWESOME frozen and crunchy.
