Ingredients

1 c
white whole wheat or gluten-free flour read more at skinnyms.com/...#riisqs0cpj6dhlcx.99
1/4 c
cocoa powder
5 Tbsp
coconut oil, melted
5 Tbsp
maple syrup or honey
1 tsp
vanilla
3/4 tsp
peppermint extract
pinch sea salt
3-8 drops water (if needed)

FOR THE CHOCOLATE:

8 oz
unsweetened chocolate
3 Tbsp
maple syrup
1 Tbsp
coconut oil
1/4 tsp
peppermint extract

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, peppermint extract, and sea salt until a thick dough forms. Add a few drops of water, if needed to keep the dough from being crumbly.

3Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll out until 1/4" thick. Cut into 1" circles and place the cut-out cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

4Bake for 7-9 minutes, or just until the cookies have set in the center. Remove and cool completely.

5Once the cookies are cool, heat together the chocolate ingredients in a small saucepan or microwaveable glass bowl. Stir until smooth. Dip the cookies into the chocolate. Return the dipped cookies to the parchment-lined baking sheet. Once all cookies have been dipped, place them in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.

6For best results, store in fridge until ready to serve.
