Servings 8 cookies


  • 1 cup Almond flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp Avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup Almond butter
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup
  • dash of Vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Crushed peppermint
  • 1/3 cup Chocolate chips


  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine your wet ingredients: egg, oil, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix these ingredients together well to break apart any clumps formed by the almond butter.
  • Once smooth, add in the almond flour and baking powder and mix! This should start to form your cookie batter.
  • Then, pour in the crushed peppermint and chocolate chips. Mix well to evenly distribute the add-ins. Feel free to add a little more of each if you want even more holiday flavor.
  • Chill the batter! This step is important, don't skip it.
  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line your baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to measure out even amounts of cookie dough and lay them on the baking tray, leave a little room in between each cookie. I was able to create 8 large cookies, but feel free to make them a little smaller for more cookies.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Let them cool and top with some drizzled chocolate and more crushed peppermint.
