A post that we recently read over at Healthy Bitch Daily had us drooling! It contained a recipe provided by www.fitsugar.com, from Erin McKenna’s BabyCakes Covers the Classics: Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes from Donuts to Snickerdoodles, for vegan, gluten free, Thin Mints. As in the Girl Scouts classic cookie. Yum!

So we give a big thanks to Healthy Bitch Daily, Fit Sugar and Baby Cakes for this delicious little recipe!

  1. Preheat the oven to 325° F. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, arrowroot, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt. Add the coconut oil, applesauce, and vanilla and mix with a rubber spatula until a thick dough forms.
  3. Drop the dough by the teaspoon full onto the prepared baking sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. Gently flatten each mound of dough, smoothing the edges with your fingers. Bake for 7 minutes, rotate the baking sheets, and bake for 7 minutes more. Let stand on the baking sheets for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the chocolate chips and mint extract in a small saucepan and place on medium heat. Stir until the chips are just melted. Do not overcook. Remove from heat. Dunk the top of each cookie into the melted chocolate and place in a single later on a platter. Refrigerate the cookies for 30 minutes, or until the chocolate sets.
