Don’t be fooled by the color of these! The coconut sugar tints them brown, but the flavor is deliciously pepperminty. A cookie treat that makes sugar plums dance in my head!
Recipe: Peppermint Cookies (makes about 30 cookies)
3/4 cup organic palm shortening or butter
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 TBSP pure vanilla extract
1.5 tsp peppermint oil or extract
2.5 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat together the palm shortening or butter, coconut sugar, coconut milk, vanilla, egg and peppermint oil.
