What I like the most about these mint chocolate cookies is that they are a perfect combination of sweet and minty flavor. And the mint flavor is just right, not too strong, but definitely noticeable.
Only six simple ingredients are needed to make these delicious cookies. And here is the list:
- Almond butter. Soft and dripping. You can substitute this with peanut butter or cashew butter.
- Maple syrup. Sweetens cookies and helps keep them soft and chewy.
- Oatmeal. Ground oats. You can make your own or buy it at any grocery store. It is also safe to eat raw.
- Cocoa powder. For the classic chocolate flavor and texture of cookies.
- Mint extract. Add that refreshing mint flavor to the recipe.
- Chocolate chips. Optional.
How to make mint cookies with chocolate?
- Homework. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet, then set aside.
- melt wet ingredients. Combine the almond butter and maple syrup in a bowl and microwave for 20 second intervals. Add the mint extract and beat until combined.
- make the cookie dough. Fold the mixture through the oatmeal and cocoa powder to create a thick batter. After the dough cools, you can add the chocolate chips.
- shape and cool. Scoop out portions of the dough and shape into cookies. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to harden.
Tips to make the best recipe.
- Avoid overheating the almond butter.. The almond butter/syrup should be melted, but it shouldn’t be too hot as it can melt the chocolate chips.
- sift the flour. If your oatmeal is coarser, sift it carefully to make sure the cookies are free of lumps.
- Use peppermint extract. You may see peppermint, spearmint, or even a generic mint extract. Always choose the mint type as it has the best mint flavor and has no added sugars.
- add plugins. These cookies are super easy to customize, to add some chopped candy canes, candy buttons, or even drizzle some melted chocolate on them.
Store. Place leftover cookies in an airtight container to store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Freeze. Place the cookies in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.
- Baking sheet. To provide a surface for cookies to set.
- Cookie scoop. To remove and shape cookies from the dough.
- Whisk. To mix the ingredients, and make a smoother dough.

Yes, peppermint candies can be used as an alternative to peppermint extract. However, the mint flavor will be more subtle.
While melted chocolate can be used in place of cocoa powder, we recommend against doing so, as it can compromise the texture of the cookies.
