Recipe: Peppermint Hot Cocoa Cookies

Recipe: Peppermint Hot Cocoa Cookies


  • 4.5 ounce semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • A pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons natural (non-alkaline) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 scoop Pure Protein Complete – Chocolate
  • 2 drops Peppermint Vitality


Makes 12 cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a heat-proof glass bowl set over a small saucepan of gently simmering water. Stir with a spatula until fully melted. Remove from heat and set aside until the mixture is cool enough to handle.
  3. Combine the egg and coconut sugar in a medium bowl and beat the mixture with a hand-held mixer until it thickens, lightens in color, and increase in volume.
  4. Sift in cocoa powder, baking soda, and Pure Protein Complete. Gently whisk until combined. Fold in the cooled melted chocolate mixture.
  5. Chill the batter in the fridge until it’s thick enough to scoop, about 10 minutes.
  6. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the batter about 1 1/2 inches apart onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake until the cookies begin to crack on top, about 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
