YOU GUYS, I think I created one of my favorite cookie recipes yet! Introducing the double chocolate peppermint brownie cookies for our 4th day of cookie week!
These are definitely for the chocolate lovers out there. They have crispy bottoms, fudgy brownie centers, pools of chocolate chips and the perfect hint of peppermint! Plus they’re flourless and dairy-free, but you wouldn’t even know!
As much as I love a classic chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate cookies always had my heart. I would choose them over regular cookies any day of the week, which is why i’m so excited to finally have my own version of them.
I based this recipe off of my beloved Almond Butter Brownies, which are the second most popular recipe on my blog!
They’re crispy, chewy, and perfectly chocolatey.
You guys know I like to keep my recipes basic. I try to use ingredients that are easy to get your hands on, and try to keep the number of ingredients minimal.
This recipe is no different. You’ll only need 8 ingredients for these cookies!
Here’s what you’ll need to make these double chocolate peppermint brownie cookies:
- Creamy almond butter– using a creamy almond butter is key for this recipe. You want to get one that’s made with roasted almonds, but has no added oils or sugars- like this one
- Coconut sugar
- Cocoa powder– make sure its unsweetened!
- Dairy-free chocolate chips
- Peppermint extract
- Baking soda
Seriously, they’re that simple.
Can I use a different nut butter?
I highly suggest sticking to almond butter, since it has a subtle taste when you bake with it. You can use peanut butter, but note that they will have a strong peanut butter flavor.
For a nut-free version, you can try using sunflower seed butter instead!
Do I need to use peppermint extract?
Nope! If you’re not a fan of peppermint, you can replace it with vanilla extract so make these classic brownie cookies.
I can’t wait for you guys to try these cookies! They’re definitely a new favorite around here.
