Gluten Free Thin Mint Cookies

Recipe from Almost Supermom

Gluten Free Thin Mints ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #girlscout #cookie #recipe

It’s Girl Scout Cookie time. Now that my girl isn’t in Girl Scouts anymore, it isn’t that big of a deal to me, but there are some Girl Scout Cookies making their way around the office. I noticed a sad expression on my gluten free friend’s face one day when she saw a box of Thin Mints being shared. She loves the Thin Mints.

I decided I needed to make her some Thin Mints that she could eat. And it just so happened I had pinned this recipe from Almost Supermom the day before. My friend helped out by bringing me some coconut flour.

These cookies are really easy to make and every single ingredient in them is healthy good. It kinda makes me wonder: why wouldn’t you want to make these? Hey, Girl Scouts: perhaps you should update your recipe?

Thank you Almost Supermom for the awesome recipe!

Gluten Free Thin Mints

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 28 minutes

Yield: About 14 cookies (depending on how big you make them)

Gluten Free Thin Mints


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • For dipping:
  • 1 cup semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or use a nonstick silicon liner.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then add in the coconut oil, honey and peppermint. Stir until the mixture forms into a thick dough. Form the dough into balls about 3/4 inch in diameter and set them on the cookie sheet, flattening each one with the palm of your hand.
  3. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. Set the cookies in the freezer to cool.
  4. Now, put the chocolate, peppermint extract and coconut oil in a bowl and microwave on high for 60 seconds. Stir. If there are still lumps in the chocolate after a vigorous stir, microwave for 30 seconds longer and stir again. Repeat until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Pull the cookies out of the freezer and remove them from the cookie sheet. Line the cookie sheet with a nonstick liner (or waxed paper will do). Dip the cookies in the chocolate to cover completely and set them on the nonstick liner, leaving a little room between the cookies so they don't stick together.
  6. Let the chocolate set and then it's time to enjoy your thin mints!
