Flourless Thin Mint Cookies

prep time:
cook time:
ready in:15 min
  • 1 1/2 -2 pastured egg whites (depending on egg size)
  • 1/3 -1/2 cup cocoa powder (depending on how large eggs are)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup granulated sweetener (I used 3/4 cup Swerve for no sugar option)
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint flavor*
  • Dash of sea salt
  • Chocolate coating: 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips or Chunks for dairy free option)
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint flavor
  • Whisk the egg whites, stir in the cocoa powder, sugar and 1/4 tsp peppermint extract and salt. The batter should be brownie batter like consistency. Add more cocoa or sweetener if it needs to be thicker.
  • Spoon out about 2 tablespoons worth of batter onto parchment lined cookie sheet. The batter will spread just slightly when baked, so spoon and swirl the batter into desired cookie size.
  • Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool and harden for a few minutes before you try to remove them from the parchment. Place cookies in the frig or freezer to harden up and cool off before coating in chocolate.
  • Chocolate Coating: Melt the chocolate chips and peppermint flavor in a double broiler (glass bowl over a pot of boiling water).
  • Dip each cookie in the melted chocolate, use a fork to toss and turn the cookie until fully coated. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight containerNotes: *I used Simply Organic Peppermint Flavor in this recipe. Other brands of mint or peppermint extracts may not be as strong and you may need to use more to taste.
