Is there anything better than a cozy cup of hot chocolate on a chilly night? I think not. I mean, unless it’s a double chocolate cookie that tastes like hot chocolate… with puddles of mint chocolate stuffed with melt-y marshmallows. Yup, I went there.

These flourless double chocolate cookies are perfectly fudgy on the inside with a slightly crisp outside with hints of mint chocolate- and the best part is the marshmallows that melt down and get toasted. Think part brownie, part cookie, part hot chocolate… part s’more?.. obviously without the graham crackers. Its kinda an amazing combination, please do give these a try 😊

Ingredients in Flourless Peppermint Hot Chocolate Brownie Cookies

These cookies are slightly adapted from my Vegan Snickerdoodle Cookies where the base is made from a nut butter (in this case, almond butter) and aquafaba. I have been LOVING using aquafaba as an egg replacement in cookies- and if you don’t yet know what aquafaba is, it’s basically just the liquid from canned chickpeas. It creates the perfect soft and chewy texture while the almond butter creates the perfect crispy edges.

In addition, we’re using cocoa powder (duh), oat flour and baking soda for structure. Oh, and these cookies are sweetened with coconut sugar keeping these cookies mostly refined sugar free! Don’t forget the vegan marshmallows and (*mint*) dark chocolate chunks to make them a solid 10/10 cookie. I mean, you could use regular dark chocolate but I love me a nice cup of peppermint hot cocoa.

How to Make Flourless Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookies

Not only are these flourless chocolate cookies just 9 ingredients, they’re also made in just 1 bowl and are so easy to make!

  1. Whisk the wet ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Mix in the dry ingredients.
  3. Fold in the vegan marshmallows and chocolate chunks.
  4. Roll into balls and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Don’t forget to let them cool on the hot baking sheet (which helps further bake them) and also on the wire rack (to let them set)

Can I Make These Chocolate Cookies in Advance? 

Yes! Which is super helpful during the busy holiday season. These chocolate cookies are best kept in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Or, you can freeze them for up to 1 month! Just let them thaw at room temp before eating.

To keep them longer, you can also store the unbaked cookie dough (rolled into portions) in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready, let them sit at room temperature while the oven is pre-heating and bake as directed.

Helpful Equipment to Make Flourless Chocolate Cookies

  • Food Scale: As always, I recommend weighing out your ingredients to achieve the best texture of these chocolate cookies.
  • Cookie Scoop: To keep the size of the cookies consistent.
  • Parchment Paper / Silicon Baking Mat: For easy clean up and to prevent over burning the bottom.
  • Cookie Baking Tray: Preferably a mid-tone coloured baking tray for even baking.
  • Wire Cooling Rack: DO let these cookies cool completely on a wire rack or they are almost too fudg-y.

  1. Fantastic! My almond butter was a little too loose so I just added more cocoa powder and flour and it worked great! What a good idea- thanks Lisa!
