Chocomint Cookie

Sharing is caring!

Chocomint Cookies. As always my recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. This recipe came about after I had leftover egg whites. I did not want to have to throw them out.

I really adore vintage pictures of Scandinavian Jul Tomte (or Nisse in Norway and Denmark) and Santa Claus. The Jul Tomte or Nisse is especially kind and loving to animals. Therefore in many of the vintage pictures, they are pictured feeding animals. Jul Tomte (Swedish Santa) notice that animals on farms work hard and that they too deserve treats they think of all the animals. Many people think that Nisse resembles gnomes but I guess I think of them more like the Irish Sprite.

The last few days seem like a whirlwind or getting ready for Christmas. I am still doing some Christmas baking. I have a couple of more cookies to bake. I have not decided on which ones I will be making. This year is a whole lot different than last year. Last year was so much harder. I had only begun my grain free journey in October. I had only just begun doing research and experimentation. Such a difference a year can make. I now have a feel for the Cassava flour I use. I can look at the dough or batter and know that it needs more liquid or more flour. I now know when the texture of a bread or cookie is off by the feel of it.

This cookie came about as a way to use up some egg whites I had leftover. I think most people like chocolate and mint together. I have carob powder, cacao powder, and cocoa powder in my pantry so why not use them all.
