Peppermint Chocolate Cookies

5 from 1 reviews

A recipe for Healthy Peppermint Chocolate Cookies that are grain-free, paleo and made in one-bowl. They’re not short on delicious, sweet flavor though and are perfect for your next holiday get-together or cookie bake-off!


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond butter (must be drippy and 100% almond based)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • optional: pinch of sea salt or 1/4 cup crushed candy cane*


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients (yes you can do this all in one bowl!).
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  4. Roll dough into 1 tablespoon-sized balls and flatten slightly (do not make them bigger than this as they spread).
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt, if using.
  6. Baking for 10-12 minutes
  7. Remove from oven and let sit on tray for 20 minutes ( do NOT attempt to remove before then).
  8. Sprinkle with crushed candy cane, if using.
  9. Place on a rack to cool completely.
  10. Will keep for up to 3 days on counter in an airtight container.
  11. These freeze well.

*You can add the crushed candy cane to the unbaked cookies but they may melt. I find it keeps its crispiness if I sprinkle on top immediately after baking.
