  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 ¼ cup almond flour (not meal) 125 g
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch (cornstarch would work as well) 32 g
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder 20 g
  • teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup organic powdered sugar for rolling


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and coconut sugar with an electric mixer until fully combined. Add the remainder of the ingredients except for powdered sugar. Mix until batter forms, about 2-3 minutes. Place bowl in freezer to chill for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Once dough has chilled, rolled dough into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8 minutes (careful not to overbake) and place baking sheet on wire rack. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before removing and placing cookies directly on wire rack to cool completely.
  • Place powdered sugar on a plate. Once cookies are completely cool, roll cookies in powdered sugar to coat.
