Chocolate Mint Cookies

Standard

Changed this recipe significantly…and although the taste was very good, the cookies were flat and had a slight taste of coconut (which wasn’t bad, but adding more coconut butter might make the coconut flavor a bit too pronounced). Also, the part where the mint was added during cooking did not seem to bake as well. Created a square cake with about half the recipe and it turned out pretty well – added the chocolates after it was cooked and then just warmed in the oven to melt chocolate a bit and create a chocolate frosting.

Used 1 TBS of coconut butter (creamed coconut) and 3 TBS of coconut oil rather than butter, used honey in place of the maple syrup, replaced coconut flour with almond flour. Might make again some time in the future with no substitutions if I can find palm shortening because the taste was very good, the cookies just spread out terribly!
