Peppermint Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Print This Recipe 5/5

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp flour of choice
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, full-fat
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp milk of choice or canned coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp agave or pure maple syrup
  • pinch stevia OR 1 additional tbsp maple syrup and cut milk back by 1 tbsp
  • 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract
  • just over 1/16 tsp salt
  • melted chocolate chips or healthy chocolate sauce, for dipping

Instructions

Combine all ingredients except chips in a tall dish or pyrex. If using a microwave, heat two minutes. Stir, then microwave one more minute OR longer, until firm enough to scoop out into ball shapes. (Alternatively, you can cook on the stovetop until it’s firm enough to scoop out into balls.) Scoop balls onto a greased cookie tray: I used a mini cookie scoop /melon baller, but a spoon or ice-cream scoop also work. Bake at 360 F for 14-16 minutes. So they do not fall apart, be sure to let the cookies cool at least 10 minutes before removing from tray. Line a plate with wax paper and dip each cooled cookie in melted chocolate. Place the cookies on the wax paper, and refrigerate or freeze to set the chocolate. Makes 12-22 cookies, depending on the size cookie scoop used.

    Oh dear! You have created a chocoholic. OK, not really. I was one before I found your blog. But you have made this diabetic very happy! I made these last week and had to triple the recipe. They disappear fast. Everyone who tried them has asked for the recipe. I have made several of your recipes. Keep them coming!

    I just made and ate my first peppermint chocolate coconut cookie and it was soooo delicious! I am on my guard that I don’t eat them all at once. So good! Very easy and quick to prepare. Didn’t have agave so used honey. Had some leftover sauce I’m letting set into chocolate bars. Thanks, Katie! You made my day!

    Hey Katie! I just tried making these mint chocolate coconut cookies today and I’m wondering if something isn’t off in the measurements in the recipe? The mixture was soup even after microwave it the recommended amount of time. In order to get it to a consistency I could scoop I had to add about a cup more flour.

    LOVED THESE! I used plain yogurt instead of milk and loved the results. I also sprinkled the still-soft chocolate with coarse salt after coating. These really hit the spot when I was craving peppermint.
