Thats How The Girl Scout Cookie Crumbles (an arguMINT for my version of this American classic)

Posted on Updated on

It’s that time of year again.

GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME, BITCHES.

The Girl Scouts of America are taking over the world one thin mint at a time. If you are like most people, you feel you have zero willpower against these adorable evil geniuses. How can you not support the growth and education of a group of young girls?

THAT’S HOW THEY GET YOU.

Not only are they incredibly overpriced, but girl scout cookies aren’t even GOOD FOR YOU. I feel like we all know this but I’ll post a photo of the nutrition label ANYWAY.

mtc_thinmint_lbbJunk, man. Not to mention a serving size is 4 cookies. 
Are you joking Girl Scouts of America? Because thats HILARIOUS.
Find me anyone in the world who is able to eat just 4 thin mints in one sitting.
4 sleeves, maybe.  Alas, I digest.

I’ve got a super easy cookie recipe to satisfy that thin mint craving. Go donate your cookie stash (and the guilt that comes with it) to a homeless person and whip up a batch of these healthier sweet treats. They are grain free and use simple ingredients. HOLLA!

Thin Minty Cookies
photo-3

1 ripe avocado

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

1/2 cup granulated sweetener (I used coconut sugar)

1 tsp alcohol free peppermint extract

1 egg

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used LILY’s Dark Chocolate Chips)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a cookie sheet

2. In a large bowl, mix ingredients until smooth. I used a mixer.

3.  Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and use the back of the spoon to spread the batter into flat circles.

4. Bake cookies 9-10 minutes

5. Remove cookies from the oven and allow to cool on the pan. Lift off sheet with a spatula and enjoy with a glass of cold coconut milk!

Yum! Enjoy my friends!  Have you tried  this recipe? Let me know how you enjoyed it! Leave a comment below and share!
