Mint Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate mint cookies, the natural way.

Like banana cake or muffins, these cookies are even better the next day, when the natural mint flavour really comes to the fore. On day one, the mint flavour is very subtle and leads to an unexpected and unusual flavour which is charmingly wholesome.

These little loves are crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, everyone’s a winner!
