Raw Peppermint Brownie Cookies

We didn’t have a CSA delivery last week because of the Labor Day Weekend. So I wondered what I was going to post since we didn’t get our weekly delivery of fresh veggies! I figured I should do something about food and good food at that! Usually Tuesday is my recipe day, but I haven’t written any new recipes lately.

For the last month or two I’ve done mostly recipes from my blog or tried and true ones for our family. There has been a lot going on around here the last few months with hosting the CSA, the start of my new Etsy shop, selling Kombucha, starting to sell doTERRA essential oils, planning for the next school year, organizing bulk wholesale orders, and then just family life. I wasn’t feeling super imspired to try anything new.

To be honest, I’ve felt less than creative in the kitchen lately. I really need to be inspired again and excited about making good food for my family. We still eat mostly paleo and haven’t fallen off the band wagon that way, but I don’t feel like we’ve had any new AMAZING dinners lately… That has GOT to change!

I LOVE to eat and it’s no fun eating food just to survive! I want it to taste AMAZING as well as knowing it’s doing good things for my body!

Even though I’m posting a recipe today I have to be honest and say that I made it at the start of the summer and never had a chance to post it. But now that I’m finally getting around to it I’m actually thinking of making a batch! These were super yummy and definitely helped curb the craving for sweets I seem to have in the afternoon when kiddos are resting!

Try them out and let me know what you think!

Raw Peppermint Brownie Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ¾ cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 TBSP coco powder
  • ½ tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 TBSP maply syrup
  • 3 TBSP coconut oil
  • ½ tsp salt

Instructions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Shape into cookies (I like to shape them in a ball and then press my thumb down in the center)
  3. Dehydrate on 135 degrees for about 3-5 hours
  4. I think they taste best when they are dried on the outside, but still gooey and moist on the inside.

Makes about 30 cookies.

Yummy, yummy! I think I’m going to make a batch this afternoon to eat with some strawberries for our dessert tonight! Mmmmmm! Let me know if you give them a try and what you think!
