It was ironic that a week after I announced recreating seven of the Girl Scouts® Cookies in no bake form that Coffee-mate reached out to collaborate. I say ironic as they have released several creamer flavors inspired by the Girl Scouts® Cookies too. It was a tough choice when deciding which one to go with as my first cookie of the series and after seeing the Coffee-mate Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® flavor- I was sold. 

To be honest, I was skeptical prior to trying this creamer. I’ve found often with ‘mint’ flavored products, the taste can be too overpowering which really detracts from the actual food or beverage. For example, when I made my friend Bec a batch of these extra chewy mint chocolate chip protein bars, I accidentally added several extra drops of peppermint extract. These took the subtle mint taste to another level- It was as though I’d asked Bec to brush her teeth simultaneously!

Fortunately, the Coffee-mate Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® flavor was just the perfect amount of mint to chocolate to sweetness ratio and so delicious, I was tempted to stop ‘sampling’ it and pour myself a glass. 

I refrained.

Just.

My intentions were to pair a coffee spiked with the Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® flavor in it but then thought….why not add some IN to the cookies themselves? Granted, I’d trialled these cookies without it, but for those wanting something just that much more special and indulgent, this is your answer.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups gluten free oat flour*
  2. ½ cup dark cocoa powder
  3. ¼ cup granulated sweetener of choice (I used coconut palm sugar)
  4. 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)
  5. ½ cup nut butter of choice (I used homemade nutella)
  6. Pinch peppermint extract
  7. 1 T + dairy free milk of choice***
  8. 1 block dairy free chocolate, to coat (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, cocoa powder, granulated sweetener of choice and protein powder, if using it.
  2. Add the peppermint extract and mix very well. Using a tablespoon, add the dairy free milk of choice until a thick batter is formed.
  3. Using your hands, form cookie shapes with the batter and place on a lined plate and freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Melt the extra dark chocolate and allow it to cool very slightly. Coat each frozen cookie in the melted chocolate and line on a lined baking tray or plate. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm
Notes
  1. * For a paleo version, sub for coconut flour (first choice) or almond flour (second choice)
  2. *** Adjust accordingly. Depending on what combination of flour you use/protein powder etc- You will most likely need more. When I used coconut flour, I used close to a full cup.

  1. These look delicious but I don’t like mint or chocolate mint things – my son does though! Actually, I did have a bite of a chocolate fudge mint brownie last month, it was just a hint of mint and pretty good. I will admit it.

  2. Well, I do love Thin Mints! I absolutely LOVE that you set out to recreate the Girl Scout Cookie flavors. Genius!! I have actually been trialling some chocolate mint cookies myself and they looked similar to yours so I quickly came over to check your ingredients, but thankfully, ours our different! I’ll have to try these though…my hubby will thank me for sure! Thin Mints are one of his favorites too. Delicious recipe, Arman!

  3. I’ve done the same for peppermint extract too–eek! Toothpaste-flavored Greek yogurt!! I still really love mint, though, especially if there are chocolate chips! These treats look incredible as well! 😀 I have to try them!

  4. Salivating at the sight of these! I have always detested mint and chocolate, but these will probably be my saving grace. I love how it is no bake but still has various layers… of chocolatey… goodness <3!

  5. Those pictures are sooooooooooo beautiful! I could kick my screen! I love the mint chocolate combo! I often order mint ice cream and dark chocolate ice cream together. So good! I am so gonna buy this coffee creamer when I am in the US!

      1. Whooopsi that’s what happens when you comment from the mobile – I guess. And Hagrid is maybe the kindes of all. So I’ll take this with a bow 😉

  6. Thin mints are probably my favorite cookie. Ever. I love that these are healthy, have some protein, and are no bake!
    I have accidental gone over board with mint extract…it was very unfortunate. I prefer not to think about it…

  7. I really like mint chip ice cream and those peppermint candies they give you at the end of a restaurant meal. I usually take six. No shame.

  8. I actually like mint flavored things. They remind me of my grandma, who used to keep the Andes mints in her purse. She’d dole them out as treats, along with hard candy which I almost choked on once, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

  9. I’ve gone multiple drops over with the extracts 😉 Duh! One time it was with mint and my chocolate spiked coffee. I didn’t hate it =)

  10. Believe it or not, I would always stock up on Thin Mints whenever the Girl Scouts would sell cookies. We haven’t bought any in several years simply because we now have a freezer full of desserts (funny how that happens!). Oh, and we often keep flavored creamers around our house. Way back when we bought this house, we invited our realtor in for a cup of coffee. We put out the creamer and I think she used more creamer than coffee. I kid you not. I about fell out of my chair when I saw that. Haha!

    1. Mate- admit it. You WERE a girl scout.

      Just kidding, but should there ever be one epic blizzard- I will shot gun escaping to your home purely to live off your freezer goods! More creamer than coffee? She’s my kind of person!

  11. Hello! Just wondering how you make your homemade Nutella? Do you have a recipe? I have been making my own healthy version and am curious to see another!

    1. Hi Amy! I change it up each time, usually depending on how thick/sweet I want it to be- Usually, I blend roasted hazelnuts until smooth and creamy, add some cocoa powder and a little sea salt, and then if I want it sweet, some granulated sweetener or maple syrup.
