Make sure to share this easy protein thin mints with your thin mint loving friends!

We wanted to address some of the questions we received : 

Lucy asked –  Do you heat the coconut oil first?
Yes. It is best to have the coconut oil in liquid form. Remember to slowly add it in.
She also asked – are you both vegetarian???
No. Our diet now is pretty much open to most foods.
Julie asked – Is hemp protein candida friendly?
We believe it since it is a protein source and not a really a carb source.
Erika asked – How many would be a serving?
For us we normally have two.

So good!
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…

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)

Hey!
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!

[…] I then made raw thin mints. I have to say, I was skeptical about these since I’ve never used hemp powder before…and opening it and seeing it was green threw me off completely. But these are delicious! I found the recipe here! […]

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.

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?

Reply
purelytwins March 28, 2018 - 8:06 pm

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!!

Reply
purelytwins November 8, 2018 - 8:50 pm

start with 3 drops and taste. And add more if desired.
