Thin Mints - BFC style


1 cup blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon coconut flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
1/4 cup Nature's Hollow Maple syrup
1 teaspoon peppermint extract

chocolate topping;
4 squares of baking chocolate
2 tb coconut oil melted
1/4 c of xylitol
½ teaspoon peppermint extract  **(my opinion - optional)


1. In a food processor, combine almond flour, coconut flour, cacao, baking soda, and salt
2. Pulse in coconut oil, syrup, and peppermint extract until dough forms
3. Roll out dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper to ⅛ inch thick
4. Freeze dough for 15 minutes
5. Using a 2-inch cookie cutter ( I used a small round container), cut out dough into 20 cookies
6. Transfer circles to a parchment lined baking sheet
7. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes
8. Cool completely on the baking sheets, then freeze for 1 hour

9. Melt chocolate, coconut oil and peppermint extract in a small bowl in microwave, then add xylitol
10. Dip each cookie in chocolate, then place on a parchment-lined plate
11. Transfer plate to freezer for 1 hour then Serve

**Keep in the freezer**

  1. Sounds delicious! I am trying to just avoid all sweets right not. Part of the getting myself back on track process, but I will make these soon. XO!

  2. wow! so impressive! I can't even contemplate making those right now. Have a great weekend!

  3. I used to love the thin mint cookies! Do you feel like you are getting 8 carbs worth per cookie? They look like 1 biters?

  4. I forgot to say they taste amazing and very rich with the chocolate on both sides. Try them and let me know if you like them and keep them in the freezer.

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
