Keto Chocolate Mint Cookies

If you’re looking for a way to bring some keto holiday cheer to your life then look no further.

These lovely Keto Chocolate Mint cookies are the perfect hostess gift or treat for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Kinda like a Brownie

A perfect balance between a cookie and a brownie with just a hint of mint make this cookie a true delight.

These cookies are a favorite because they are both chewy and crunchy.

Allulose

Using a mix of allulose and erythritol are the magic that make this recipe the perfect cookie texture. Allulose, The Rare Sugar is another one of those low carb sweeteners that you’re probably hearing about.

I use a mix of Allulose and erythritol because I want these cookies to be both soft, but hold together. This mix of low carb sweeteners is the only way I have found that you can get that cookie texture.

The Peppermint

There are two elements of the mint flavor in this recipe for Keto Chocolate Mint Cookies. First you have the peppermint extract that we add to the dough. 1 1/2 tsp of extract added to the dough gives the cookies the perfect amount of mint flavor.

The other element of mint comes from the crushed sugar-free candy on top of the cookies. It’s beautiful, right?

The peppermint candies are a visual effect and are NOT necessary.

These candies are available online or at the dollar store. For this recipe the sugar-free candies are optional. While the recipe only calls for 3 candies total, they are made with a sugar alcohol that has a higher glycemic index.

The Extra Drizzle

Another element of this recipe for Keto Chocolate Mint Cookies is the low carb white chocolate drizzle on top.

This step is an extra step. While I do not believe the drizzle is 100% necessary, I really think it adds a nice touch of holiday cheer to this low carb cookie.

Storage

After the cookies have fully cooled place them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup allulose
  • 1/3 cup low carb sweetener powdered
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter powder unsweetened
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup almond butter natural smooth
  • 1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • cup low carb semi-sweet choc chips Lily's brand
  • 1 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 cup low carb white chocolate chips Lily's brand
  • 1 tbsp cacao butter or coconut oil
  • 3 Sugar Free Peppermint candies (optional) crushed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350* and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour all ingredients into a large mixing bowl (except the candies). Thoroughly mix until fully combined. Batter should be sticky and stiff.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons place 1-2 tsp sized balls on to your parchment paper lined baking sheet about 1” apart.
  • Bake for 8 minutes and remove promptly from the oven. Let cool for 1-2 minutes. Gently with a small glass or plate press each cookie slightly flatter.
  • While cookies are in oven gently melt the cacao butter and low carb white chocolate chips in the microwave until fully melted and runny. Drizzle white chocolate over each cookie to your liking.
  • Sprinkle each cookie with crushed peppermint candies (optional). Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

Note: Allulose tends to bake very fast and will burn if you try to bake these cookies to a crispness. Trust me, you want these cookies chewy….Do not over bake them.
Also note that this dough is very sticky…that’s ok.  I use a small ice cream scoop with a release lever to help mine onto the cookie sheet.  Use two spoons to help you get your cookie dough on to the cookie sheet.  You can always dampen your finger tips to help you form small mounds on the sheet before baking.
Last note…the crushed peppermint candies are optional, but do add a festive touch.
