What is your take on stevia?
What is your favorite girl scout cookie?
No stevia for me so I made these with maple syrup. I also used carob instead of cocoa.
I always loved my girl scout thin mints so these are an excellent treat! Plus my husband passes on the mint/chocolate combo so I don’t have to share. Maybe I will make him the variation with almond extract…
How much maple syrup did you use?
Please ….. how much maple syrup???? I want to make for grandson and don’t use stevia.
These sound great! I love the combination of chocolate and mint.
These look awesome and so easy! I’ve been looking for ways to use up my hemp protein!
Ive never ever used protein powder. What can replace it? Or is it a must in these cookies?
I have all the other ingredients.
not really sure what is the best replacement for protein powder in this recipe, you could try using carob or mesquite flour or almond flour (not sure how it would do)
I didn’t have hemp protein powder at home either so I tried 1/4 of a cup of Great lakes Collagen and 1/2 of a cup of almond flour with 8 tbs of coconut oil. This was my first time making the recipe so I don’t have much to compare it to but I thought that they turned out AWESOME!!! Great texture and taste! Hope that helps!
Sarah so happy to hear that!! xoxo
How many calories per thin mint?
Love the simplicity! I’ll be trying them soon for sure! Thanks, ladies! 🙂
Well, it’s confirmed – I’m Miss Recipe Botcher. How could I mess something as simple as this up? XD Only me! 😛 I made two mistakes:
1) I used a very old liquid SweetLeaf stevia that was kind of white-y. I don’t know why, but it was really concentrated and even though I used the right amount it sweetened way too much.
2) I used the amount for peppermint extract but with the DoTerra essential oil instead, so it’s way too minty.
I have them in the freezer right now. I’m both looking forward to and fearing trying them, lol.
Oh no sorry girl. Hopefully they still turn out for ya.
I don’t understand how get them so thin?
Any idea of the carb count?
2.Scoop onto a plastic container.
3.Then set in fridge or freezer to set.
4.Keep refrigerator or store in freezer
I don’t understand #2, can you please clarify? When do you make them into individual thin mints??
It does not say how you bake them???
You don’t. Just stir and place in fridge.
I’m excited to try these, but I think I did something wrong. My batter was really runny and medium brown instead of dark like your photos. In the freezer now, but I was hoping for some insight?
I’m confused- if you scoop all of the mixed batter into a plastic container and chill- you would have a big chilled ball, not thin cookies. Do you form the cookies after they have chilled?
You scoop the cookies using a cookie or ice cream scooper, place on a tray or plate to set in freezer or fridge.
How many drops of essential oil would you use (the recipe says “a drops)?
Thank you so much….can’t wait to make these!!
start with 3 drops and taste. And add more if desired.
