Share

Rich chocolate couples refreshing peppermint in these sugar-free keto cookie bars. No-bake peppermint chocolate cookies’ chewy little bites get their green color from chlorella, a superfood derived from seaweed with a promise to support better immune function and even improve your endurance at the gym.

These keto cookie bars are ideal to satisfy cravings, especially if you enjoy putting chocolate and mint together. Plus, they can help freshen your breath! This recipe is simple to double and freeze so you can always keep cookie bars on hand. While the chocolate drizzle makes the finest garnish, these bars are still perfectly delicious without it.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons  granulated erythritol/monk fruit blend
  • 2 tablespoons Grass-Fed Ghee
  • 6 tablespoons Collagen Protein
  • 4-6 drops of food-grade peppermint essential oil
  • 2 teaspoons organic chlorella powder
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon  granulated erythritol/monk fruit blend, or 15 drops of liquid stevia
INSTRUCTIONS:
  •  In a blender, add shredded coconut and blend on medium to high speed until finely chopped.
  • Add remaining cookie bar ingredients except for collagen, and blend until well combined.
  • Add the collagen and mix at the lowest speed until just incorporated to avoid damaging proteins.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, and scoop out the ingredients into the tin.
  • Press down evenly with a spoon, and then freeze for around 1 hour until they are firm enough to slice.
  • While cookie bars are set, prepare chocolate drizzle (optional): In a small bowl, combine ingredients until well incorporated.
  • Remove bars carefully from the pan and slice. Pass your knife under hot water and work slowly for the best results.
  • Drizzle cookie bars with chocolate mixture and freeze for at least 5 more minutes. Serve cold and store in the freezer.
