  • 1 1/2 c gluten free baking flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 3 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
  • 1 cup shortening coconut oil + palm oil blend
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla or peppermint extract
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip gluten-free
  • 4 large candy cane or peppermint sprinkles


  • Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees.
  • In a medium bowl whisk flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Set aside
  • In a large bowl combine the brown sugar, shortening, vanilla or peppermint extract and maple syrup until creamy and uniform.
  • Add half of the flour mix into the liquids and stir to combine. Add the other half and continue to stir until uniform. This is going to look thick, use your hands if easier. When the batter is uniform, add in the chocolate chips and fold.
  • Form small size balls in the palm of your hands and press down slightly. Bake for 13-15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, let it cool off for no more then 2-3 minutes then sprinkle with peppermint sprinkles or broken candy cane pieces.
