Choc Mint Cookies
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Prepare a cooking tray with baking paper or baking mat.
Mix together nut butter, egg, honey, peppermint, salt and baking soda until well combined. this works best with a rubber spatula.
Mix in the cacao powder. The batter will be getting quite thick.
Sift in the coconut flour. The mix will be getting very thick as the coconut flour is super absorbent (this is why I add it towards the end).
Fold in the choc chips until evenly distributed.
Scoop out 12 even spoonfuls onto tray. You can pick up and roll the batter into rough balls and flatten slightly on tray so they’re uniform.
Bake for 12-13 minutes.
Cool on rack. They will harden more on cooling.
