Are you looking for a delicious and healthy holiday cookie, then I got you covered? Do you love thin mint cookies, then I also got you covered. These incredibly tasty Chocolate Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies are going to bow you away. They are also gluten-free, dairy-free and refined-sugar-free but you’d never even know it!
Now I will say that this cookies are not overly sweet, which I actually prefer, however, you can choose to increase the amount of coconut sugar in the recipe if you prefer your mint cookies on the sweeter side.
We made these last weekend with my sister-in-law and the kids and they were a hit. Oh and I highly recommend dunking these babies into your favorite milk of choice, this really is the icing on the cake.
