Special Notes

You can use any kind of nut or seed flour. To make the flour, simply take a cup of dry nuts (almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds) and grind them with a coffee grinder or magic bullet type blender until a fine flour like substance appears.

I have also done this with ½ cups of coconut flour instead of 1 cup nut/seed flour.  You can also form the batter into bite sized balls to change it up a bit.

Dr Jockers Comments:

If you enjoy girl scout thin mint cookies than this is your recipe!  It is low-carb, full of healthy ingredients, easy to make and taste amazing!!

I personally cannot even get close to Girl Scout cookies, or the box will be gone!  Haha!  It takes great discipline for me to stay away from sugar so other than a few times a year I don’t let myself even have the option.

One time that I do allow some sugar is around the holidays.  I, of course, go for much healthier options and some that are sugar-free like these amazing grain-free thin mint cookies.  There are tons of super ingredients in these such as healthy fats from the coconut oil and pastured eggs.  The organic chocolate and peppermint extract also provide lots of antioxidant phytonutrients.

It is best to go with coconut flour which is a grain-free, low-carb flour that contains tons of healthy prebiotic fibers and fatty acids that help to nourish our microbiome and support the growth of microbes that help us burn fat and detoxify better.

Most people enjoy the flavor of stevia, but some do complain about a slightly bitter after-taste.  Adding in a pinch of pink salt into your stevia recipes does wonders for eliminating this after-taste.  Remember, stevia is 100 times stronger than sugar, so you don’t need much!

Your family will go crazy for these healthier alternatives!  Girl scout cookies without the myriad of toxins those things contain!  No trans-fats or high omega 6 oils and the use of a sugar-free sweetener such as stevia.  No GMO’s, no chemical toxins and no additives and preservatives!  Yeeeaaah!

  1. All of the recipes on this site look so good. Best part is the good ingredients, actual nutrition instead of the junk sold in stores.

  2. I love this recipe but when I use only coconut flour I find the amount of coconut oil is way off – I end up needing to add about 6-7 extra Tbsp of coconut flour and cocoa powder to make a batter (I would need to add even more if I wanted to be able to roll it into balls). Next time I make this I would only use 1/4 cup oil.

  3. The recipe calls for 1tsp of Stevia. Is that powder, granuales, or liquid? I would assume one of the first two since the liquid is so potent, but wanted to make sure.

  4. The recipe calls for 1/2 tsp peppermint…what kind of peppermint? I hav no idea what u mean by peppermint Thanks!

    1. I use peppermint essential oil (Young Living, as it is guaranteed food grade & usable for tons of other health benes) Or peppermint extract can also be used.

  5. I also am not a fan of stevia… if you used honey or maple syrup what amount would you recommend?
