Ingredients:

For the Cookie:

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter, softened
  • ½ cup Swerve
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 ⅓ cups almond flour
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For the Coating:

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat together the butter and Swerve until fluffy with an electric mixer.  Add the egg and ½ teaspoon peppermint extract and beat until well combined.
  3. Sift the almond flour, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt into the butter mixture and mix to form a stiff dough.  Roll half of the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper until ¼-inch thick.
  4. Using a 2-inch circle cutter, cut out 12 cookies.  Repeat the process with the other half of the dough.  Place the cut out cookies onto the lined cookie sheets.
  5. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, then allow to cool for 10 minutes.  Place the baked cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  6. Place the 2 cups of Bake Believe Semi-Sweet chips, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, and 1 ½ teaspoon peppermint extract in a small heat-proof bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted.
  7. Dip the cookies, one at a time, into the melted semi-sweet chip mixture and drain using a fork.  Place back on the parchment lined cookie sheet.  Freeze the cookies for 10 minutes.  Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator.  For a snappy texture, store in the freezer!
