Double chocolate peppermint cookies loaded with chocolate chunks and refreshing peppermint are super easy to make and perfect for your next holiday cookie exchange!
What’s better than chocolate chip cookies…double chocolate chip cookies?! Or, even better…double chocolate peppermint cookies!! HealthNuts, hands down – these are the BEST chocolate cookies I have ever made! If you watched my Vlgomas video on my Youtube channel last week, you likely saw that I was testing this recipe along with some other holiday cookies. They turned out so delicious that I couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you! They taste like a chewy brownie on the inside, and with the chocolate chunks added it’s like a melt in your mouth chocolate explosion.
When it comes to chocolate and peppermint, you either LOVE it or hate it. You can probably tell, I love me some chocolate and peppermint together! I think by now you guys know that when I want to healthify a delectable recipe, my go-to is light spelt flour and coconut sugar. And, as per usual if you want to make them gluten-free, you can! Just swap the flour for gluten-free all purpose flour.
For those of you that are dairy-free you’ll be happy to know I did skip the butter this time! So these cookies are dairy-free, with almond butter and a touch of avocado oil instead. This gives these cookies a chewy moist consistency. If you prefer your cookies sans peppermint, then leave out the peppermint extract! You can absolutely enjoy them just as regular double chocolate cookies.
Don’t wait until the holidays to enjoy these! I think these are going to be on a regular rotation throughout the year in the HealthNut kitchen! To make them extra festive, I highly recommend topping them with crushed candy canes. Feliz Natal!
If you’re a huge fan of chocolate peppermint you’re going to love my Dairy-Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate as well!

These cookies are so delicious! I used the Nuts and Seed butter from Costco because the main ingredient is almonds and I find it perfectly “drippy” as this recipe calls for and they turned out perfect! I love how they look with the crushed candy cane on top too.
