Fluffy Thic Mint Cookies {gf, df}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Growing up a Girl Scout myself, thin mints were my absolute favorite cookie. If you’re anything like me, you will love these copycat thin mints! I mean, the texture is just perfect; a balance of fluffy inside and hard, crunchy outside. These cookies feature my favorite gluten free, dairy free baking ingredients, such as almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, dairy free chocolate chips, pure maple syrup, and more. They are so easy to make and are sure to bring all the holiday cheer to your christmas dessert table!
