Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Delicious Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies
Baking cookies for holiday parties, gatherings with family and to simply have a stash under my cake dome for my little family and when friends stop by, is one of my favorite simple joys! I love baking with seasonal flavors and am always inspired by the holidays!
These Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies are one of the best cookies to ever come out of my kitchen! I made two batches before a small gathering this week and all but a few were gone at the end! They are a hit! With the adults and kids, too!. A healthier, Christmas Cookie, with nutrients from 7 seeds, protein and fiber, I'm all for that!!
They are soft and chewy and kinda melty chocolate style in the center and slightly browned and a tiny bit crispy on the outside. DELISH!

Makes approx. 27 cookies
1/2 c organic coconut oil
3/4 c coconut palm sugar
1 organic egg
1 t vanilla extract
1 t peppermint extract/flavor
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t sea salt
3 c Guiltless Superfoods 7 Seed Flour
1 c dark chocolate chips
1/2 c peppermint pieces
Beat together coconut oil and sugar until blended and creamy. Add in egg, vanilla and peppermint flavor. Mix until combined and smooth.
Add in Guiltless Flour, sea salt and baking powder to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined and completely incorporated.
Fold in chocolate chips and peppermint pieces. Cover cookie dough and chill in refrigerator for a least 1 hour and up to 48 hours. This helps the dough set up.
Remove from fridge and preheat oven to 350. Using a cookie or small ice cream scooper, scoop out cookies and place on parchment covered baking sheets. Press dough down slightly (want them thick not too thin). Bake for 10 minutes or just until edges are slightly brown.
Cool and enjoy!
*If served slightly warm, they chocolate chip centers are still ooegy-gooey and melty! So good!
