Paleo Vegan Chocolate-Mint Cookies

Paleo Vegan Chocolate-Mint Cookies

 

More and more people are embracing healthy eating, and are reducing their sugar intake, and cutting out white flour and processed foods.

Once you learn a few new cooking tips, and creative ways to replicate your old favorites using healthier ingredients, there is no reason to ever feel deprived.

This recipe is a raw vegan paleo version of a Girl Scout-style cookie, the thin mint!

The measurements are by weight so that it will be accurate every single time you create it.

Check out this recipe for Healthy Brownie Bites!

You will need:

9.5 ounces pitted dates

3.2 ounces coconut flakes

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon Himalayan or other good salt

1.5 ounces raw cacao nibs

1.5 ounces raw cacao powder

1 tablespoon agave or maple syrup

4 drops peppermint essential oil

5 ounces dark chocolate (I’ve used Green and Black’s 70%, Trader Joe’s 72%, but you can use any brand you like)

Place all the ingredients except for the 5 ounces of dark chocolate in a food processor and pulse until everything is bound together.

Portion the cookies using a small melon baller; space the balls evenly on a parchment covered cookie sheet, and flatten them out into small flat circles using a spatula or your hand.

Melt the 5 ounces of dark chocolate in a double boiler. Using small tongs or a fork, dip each cookie in the melted chocolate, shake off extra drips, and space them evenly on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Let them set in the refrigerator to set the chocolate.

Here's a recipe for Wicked Intense Brownie Cookies

Happy healthy snacking,
