Happy St Patricks Day! I love these festive, spring-like Black, White and Green Cookies! I used almond flour in here to make the cookies and then dipped in my fave dark chocolate for a little sweet treat :). These cookies are gluten and dairy free and a great alternative to other less-healthy treats for the holiday!

Black, White and Green Cookies

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 60 minutes

Makes: 24, 2-inch cookie

Ingredients:

For the cookies:

  • 2 cups almond flour (make almond meal from 2 cups raw almonds)
  • 2 Tablespoons organic cane or coconut sugar
  • Dash salt
  • 1 kale leaf, juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 drops peppermint oil

Chocolate topping:

  • ΒΌ cup dark chocolate chips (vegan or regular- depending on preference), melted over a double boiler

Directions:

  1. Process almonds in a food processor or use 2 cups almond flour or meal.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl- the almond flour with cane or coconut sugar and dash of salt.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients- kale juice, coconut butter, maple syrup and peppermint oil.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix with a spoon or fork until homogenous.
  5. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to set for 20-30 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and flatten between two sheets of parchment paper using a rolling pin.
  8. Use a cookie cutter or a bottle top (I used a water bottle top) to cut out cookies.
  9. Once all cookies have been cut out, place tray (or trays) in oven for 5-7 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are slightly browned.
  10. Once the cookies are cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  11. Melt the dark chocolate using a double boiler and dip one side of each cookie in the melted chocolate then place back onto a parchment paper sheet.
  12. Allow the cookies to set, then serve or store in the refrigerator.

Enjoy and Happy St. Patties Day!
