I have been struggling to find Clean Christmas cookies that don’t taste clean…ya know what I mean? I have searched on pinterest and other clean eating sites, and I have to say, it’s been disappointing. Clean Christmas cookie recipes are hard to find, and the ones I did find weren’t very good. I tried one recipe for Christmas cut out cookies and my five year old took one bite and said “Mommy these taste like grass”…..and they kinda did. I have been tinkering around in the kitchen trying to come up with something that is clean AND delicious. These are the final product! I love Chocolate and I wanted a cookie with some type of “frosting”. These taste like a York peppermint patty. Mmmmmmm I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! If you have a great Clean Christmas Cookie recipe, please share!
1/2 Cup Millet flour (I bought mine at Wegmans, I think Bulk Barn has this as well)
1/2 Cup Whole Grain pastry flour (I bought this at Wegmans too. This is very hard to find in Canada. Health food stores may have it. I suggest getting it in the States if you can, it is worth it! You can substitute this with whole wheat flour it just has a bit more of a harsh taste)
1/4 Cup chocolate chips(chopped or blended in a food processor)
3 Tbsp Coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup Honey
1 Tsp Baking powder
1 Tsp Peppermint Extract
1 Egg (beaten)
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
Preheat Oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. If the dough is sticky, add more flour (1 TBSP at a time) Roll the dough into balls and press down slightly to flatten them. Cook for approx 8-12 minutes.
1 Cup Almond butter
1 Cup Plain greek yogurt
1/2 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Cocoa powder
2 Tsp Vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients together. If the icing is too “wet” add a little more cocoa powder until you get your desired thickness.
