Attention mint chocolate lovers! Here is a cookie recipe you absolutely have to try. Here are the ingredients that you need for this recipe:
- 150 grams all purpose flour about 1 cup
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar you can also use coconut sugar or cane sugar!
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 10 tbsp oat milk or plant milk (this is 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp)
- 2 & 1/2 tbsp avocado oil or another neutral tasting oil
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
For the chocolate cookie topping:
- 1/4 cup flax meal
- 3 tbsp dutch process cocoa powder
- 1 & 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
Here are the directions that you need to follow in order to complete this recipe:
First, you need to preheat your oven to 425F.
In a small blender, blend together all of the oat milk, avocado oil, peppermint extract and mint leaves. You want it to blend until you get a smooth green colored mixture.
In a large bowl, whisk together all of the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Gradually add the wet ingredients in with the dry and whisk together until just combined.
In a separate small bowl, whisk together the flax and cocoa powder. Add the maple syrup and mix. The mixture should come together but be slightly crumbly, just like oreo cookie crumbles.
Use muffins liners (or if you are lazy like me, parchment paper!) and line a 6-count muffin tin. Pour in the batter equally to each muffin tin.
Top each muffin with about 1/2 tbsp of the cookie crumble mix. Use a toothpick to break up the mix and swirl it around the tops of the muffins.
Bake the muffins for 5 minutes at 425F. Then, without opening the oven door, decrease the heat to 375F and bake for another 15 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and let them cool. Share them with family and friends or dig right in and enjoy!
