Vegan Thin Mint Funfetti Cookies

tis the season for everything peppermint and gingerbread!! i might still be sneaking in some pumpkin, but for the most part i am all about the peppermint. i adored thin mints when was younger, they were my favorite treat. we would put them in the fridge and it was just glorious! i loved dipping them in peanut butter do, but then again, what didn’t i dip in peanut butter.

you can make Vegan Thin Mint Funfetti Cookies without the sprinkles if you want, but i think they make them so much more fun. the sprinkles i bought are from Whole Foods but i also ordered a huge jar from amazon too! will link both in the pictures below!

the sprinkles i use!

Whole Foods brand

ok moving on to the COOKIES!!! they’re perfectly soft on the inside but a little chewy on the outside. instead of adding sprinkles into the batter, i just shaped the cookie batter into balls and then rolled them in sprinkles. you just need to slightly flatten the cookies!

i did a tutorial on my IG stories! it seems like that’s really helpful, so i can definitely keep doing more. would videos interest you on the blog too? i could make a reel video and post it on IG and here too. just let me know, whatever is helpful!!

what ingredients do you need?

  • almond flour
  • egg replacer
  • baking powder
  • cocoa powder
  • almond butter
  • maple syrup
  • almond milk
  • peppermint extract
  • chocolate chips
  • sprinkles
  • vegan butter

yes, the cookies are just that simple and easy! let’s talk about a few substitutions!

1. egg replacer: you could also use a flax egg- mix 1 tbsp flax meal with 2 tbsp water
2. vegan butter: for the ganache, you could use room temp coconut oil instead
3. peppermint extract: if you don’t like peppermint, you can use vanilla extract or almond
4. maple syrup: you can replace with another sweetener, but if it’s granulated sugar, you may need to add a little more liquid. also, the texture might be a bit different from mine!

if you’re not into the ganache, store-bought frosting is always an option! so is peanut butter or other nut and seed butters. you can really top with anything you want. don’t be intimidated by ganache or chocolate sauce in general though! the way i make it is basically fail proof.

no burning, no constant stirring. all i do is place everything in a microwaveable measuring cup and warm up for 30 seconds. take it out, stir and then place back in the microwave for 30 more seconds. one minute is all it takes! in fact, 45 second would probably be enough too!

ok yay! let’s get baking!! tag me in your IG pics- can’t wait to see!
