When girl scout cookies are in season, we buy a ton of thin mints and they never seem to last long. So, it was time to start making them at home whenever the craving starts to creep on us.
These vegan thin mints are the real deal and they freeze wonderfully. They taste pretty close to the thin mints you buy, but they are made with natural ingredients!
To get the fresh mint flavor, I used Frontier’s Mint Flavored Oil. It’s non-alcoholic and it’s not very over-powering. I even add a drop of the oil when making mint chocolate chip ice cream, or my favorite mint chocolate chip smoothie!
After baking the cookies, let them cool and dip them in melted chocolate. To give extra crunch and nice color contrast, I topped the cookie with pistachios. I instantly love the combo, I’m planning on making chocolate pistachios for a great on-the-go snack (stay tuned)! I hope you all love these cookies! ♥
