Flourless Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

FlexFoodie Recipe 2 Comments

With Christmas coming up, two things run through my mind:

  1. Where the hell did 2017 go?
  2. It’s cookie time.

My family and I often like to get our grub on on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This year, I offered to make some of my recipes and bring them for everyone to try out. I have been wanting to work on by baking skills lately and it is the perfect time for cookies.

I got in the kitchen and the result was these peppermint chocolate chip cookies. They are gluten-free for you that live that life. I have been wanting to whip something minty up for weeks, but wasn’t sure what!

As always, if you make them donโ€™t forget to share them with me by using the hashtag #LiveLifeFlexbibly or tagging me @TheFlexibleFoodie. Hereโ€™s to foolproof baking and Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Prep Time: 5 minutes

  • 1/4 teaspoon-1/2 teaspoon Peppermint Extract (found here)

They are higher fat due to the fact that they are flourless. However they are paleo, grain-free, and foolproof.ย
