Chocolate Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

So, Valentine’s day is tomorrow. I don’t know about you, but to me nothing says I love you better than chocolate. And nothing says I love you more than any and everything better than chocolate chip mint. Chocolate chocolate chip mint cookies to be precise.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies shaped like hearts

Yeah, I know. Here I go with chocolate and peppermint. With my peppermint hazelnut clusters, chocolate mint brownies and hot chocolate with peppermint, you would think I was a little crazy for chocolate and peppermint.

I am.

And nothing says the universe loves me more than my experiment of chocolate chocolate chip mint cookies turning out amazing the very first try. And the second and the third.

OK, that is a bit too strong. I know the universe loves me. And it’s not because of chocolate chocolate chip mint cookies. But they sure are up there.

For anyone really keeping track, of course my husband, kids, family and friends come way before. But since my husband and kids love these cookies as much as I do, it’s a-ok.

In fact, I overheard LM last night on the baby monitor telling his daddy how much he liked my cookies. He said they were AWESOME!

Can’t get much better than that, right?

So, if you are a fan of chocolate chocolate chip mint cookies, I suggest you make these. It really isn’t any harder than a regular cookie recipe. I think the only difference is that you have to melt the coconut oil to get it to mix well.

And try making them heart shaped. I tried it with a few, and while some turned out a little blobby, a lot looked like hearts.

So, Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours. I hope it’s a day filled with love and chocolate.

    Hi Tessa,

    So glad they worked out for you. These are going to be our go-to cookie here from now on. I’m going to have to try the gelatin, though. My step-mil can’t have flax or eggs, so I need a substitute when we go to my in-laws. Good call! Thanks!

      The boys keep asking for more, so I think I did right on this one for sure. At least to a 2 and 6 year old. 😉

      Of course. I love sharing on Gluten Free Wednesdays. And they are quite good. I think everything should be chocolate mint. 😉

    Can’t wait to try these! I have doterra peppermint essential oil, any tips for using it instead of the extract?

      Hi Amy,

      Unfortunately, I don’t really know much about doterra oils or what is supposed to be topical vs food grade. I have only used the peppermint extract you get in the baking section at the grocery store. It might be better to ask your doterra representative. They would have a better idea, I would think. Either way, I hope you enjoy the cookies as much as we do.

    Can I substitue eggs instead of the flax eggs? Recipe looks delicious.
