A gluten-free version of the classic Girl Scout cookie!

Ingredients

    1 c. almond flour

    1/4 c. coconut flour

    1/2 c. coconut sugar

    1/4 c. cacao powder

    1/4 tsp. sea salt

    1 egg

    1/2 c. butter

    12 oz. chocolate chips

    1 tsp. peppermint extract

Directions

Combine almond flour, coconut flour, cacao powder, sea salt, and coconut sugar in a large bowl. Add egg, softened butter, and 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract; mix until dough is formed. Roll the dough into a log on parchment paper and put in the refrigerator or freezer to chill.

When the dough is solid, use a sharp knife to cut into slices about 1/2 inch thick (should make about 24 cookies). Arrange the cookies on a baking sheet. Bake at 375ºF for 18-20 minutes. Remove cookies from oven and let cool until they’ve hardened.

Make the chocolate coating by melting chocolate chips and stirring in the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract.

One by one, dip the cookies into the melted chocolate to coat both sides. The chocolate should be fairly runny and only coat in a small layer. If the chocolate is thicker, heat it up until it melts more. Lay the cookies on a cool baking sheet lined with parchment paper and refrigerate to fully harden.

These cookies will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
