Keto Mint Chocolate Cookies

Hello my friends!  These Mint Chocolate Cookies are by far my favorite keto cookies to date.  I have been experimenting with a number of cookie recipes for the holidays.  I wanted to create something that I felt was festive enough to serve with all my sweet treats but would be keto friendly. 

They taste a bit like a dark chocolate brownie with a hint of mint flavouring.  I love the combination of soft, chewy texture and chocolately flavour.  The mixture of mint and chocolate really gives these cookies a festive feel that is perfect for pairing with other holiday goodies.

I wasn’t always a fan of dark chocolate but once I began to follow a ketogenic lifestyle I quickly became a convert.  But if you don’t like dark chocolate, you probably wont like these cookies.  They are definitely not as sweet as a traditional cookie and very dark chocolate tasting.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond flour

125 grams cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

3 tsp stevia

1 tsp peppermint extract

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg

Rather than drizzling dark chocolate overtop of the cookies I now dip them into the chocolate.  Very similarly to my Peppermint Dipped Chocolate Cookies.
