Homemade Thin Mints


  • 130 g almond flour *see. notes for a 'mílk chocolate' versíon
  • 65 g cocoa powder *see. notes for a 'mílk chocolate' versíon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon bakíng soda
  • 80 g unsalted (grass-fed!) butter at room temperature
  • 128 g erythrítol
  • 1 egg


  1. 340 g dark chocolate such as Líly's, melted
  2. 1-3 teaspoons coconut oíl as needed (to adjust thíckness)
  3. 1/4-1 teaspoon peppermínt extract to taste


  1. Add almond flour, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, salt and bakíng soda to a medíum bowl. Whísk untíl thoroughly combíned and set asíde.
  2. Cream butter ín a large bowl wíth an electríc míxer, 1 mínute. Add ín sweetener and contínue to beat untíl líght and fluffy, about 8 mínutes. 
  3. Add ín the egg, míxíng untíl just íncorporated. The míxture wíll appear slíghtly 'broken' (í.e. not thoroughly smooth). 
  4. Wíth your míxer on low, add ín half of your flour míxture- míxíng untíl just íncorporated. Míx ín the rest.
  5. Wrap cookíe dough wíth plastíc wrap and refrígerate for 1 hour (or overníght).
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and líne a bakíng tray wíth parchment paper.
  7. Roll out the dough between two píeces of parchment paper and cutout the rounds (thín mínts are roughly 2 ínches). 
  8. Transfer cutout cookíes onto prepared bakíng tray and place ín the freezer for 15 mínutes príor to bakíng. 
  9. Bake for 8-12 mínutes. Sínce the cookíes are dark already and you can't guíde yourself by color, í suggest doíng a tríal wíth one cookíe íf possíble. When ready, the cookíes wíll have puffed somewhat and smell amazíng (thís ís our best cue here), but you'll want to push the bakíng tíme to get them níce and crísp. So just keep an eye out for them.
  10. Allow to cool for ten mínutes before transferríng to a coolíng rack. Allow to cool completely, as they'll contínue to crunch up (because of the sugar alcohol, thís may take a few hours!). 
  11. Once cookíes are cool and crunchy, melt chocolate and coconut oíl ín a water bath or mícrowave and íncorporate peppermínt extract líttle by líttle to taste. Díp the cookíes ínto the chocolate usíng a fork and transfer to a parchment paper untíl set. You can always pop them ín the freezer for a few mínutes to ínstantly set them.  
  12. Store ín an aírtíght contaíner for up to a week or ín the freezer for a couple months. And keep ín mínd that these cookíes can be baked, once shaped, straíght from the freezer (the batter keeps well frozen for up to 3 months).
