Ingredients

  • 12 Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Honey Mints or peppermint patty of your choice

Wet Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup palm shortening or butter room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoon peppermint extract

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon fine salt

Instructions

  • Unwrap the honey mints. Place them in a bowl in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, or using a hand mixer, blend together all the wet ingredients until well-combined.
  • Add all the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Scoop out tablespoon-size mounds of dough onto the cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie slightly. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove the honey mints from the freezer and take the cookies out of the oven. Press 1 honey mint down onto each cookie. Bake for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Cool the cookies on the pan for 5-10 minutes. Transfer carefully to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Enjoy!

*If making your own peppermint patties, be sure to make them relatively thin and only 1-inch in diameter.
