  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 20-22 cookies 1x

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (I use this brand)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 drops Peppermint Essential Oil OR 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp unrefined salt (like this) (if your almond butter contains salt, decrease to 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use THIS dairy, soy, and nut free brand)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350’F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking sheets.
  2. Whisk together whole egg and egg yolk. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together almond butter and coconut sugar until fully combined. Add vanilla extract, peppermint oil/extract, baking soda, and salt. Mix until fully incorporated. Then add whisked egg and egg yolk and mix again until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Using a tablespoon-sized measuring spoon or scoop, form the dough into round balls and place onto prepared baking sheets.
  5. Press balls down, as these cookies spread only a bit in the oven.
  6. Bake 10 -12 minutes until cookies are golden brown
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

Please only use pure, food-grade therapeutic essential oils for cooking. Many essential oils that are sold are not 100% pure and can be adulterated. These are not meant for consumption. My essential oil of choice is Young Living. Learn more about where to get good quality essential oils HERE.
