    These are AMAZING!! I used sukrin gold, because it is what I have. I added 1/2 teaspoon of white granulated sugar because, believe it or not, since I’ve been on Keto for a year, I am so sensitive to sugar, I can detect even that tiny amount. A rolled them very thin, and use a small shot glass. So…. the recipe made about 80 chocolate wafers. With breakage, I got about 18 out of my first batch (quarter of the dough). It took four bars of moser roth 85% chocolate to coat them. I really pushed the peppermint. I used about 18 drops in 2 bars of moser roth. They are so rich that I find that after a very few, I am completely satisfied. These are absolutely delicious.

      Thank you for your detailed comment, always super helpful! And yes, sukrin would work great too (erythritol too!) ๐Ÿ™‚

    How does it equal out to 1 net carb per cookie when 9oz of lilyโ€™s dark chocolate chips is 91 net carbs for a whole bag?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Jessica! I suggest you calculate your own nutritional values as you see fit, the cookies are themselves less than 1g net carb each and for the amount of chocolate I used it came to 1g net for me xo!

    Hmm, I’ve always loved “mystic mint” cookies much better than thin mints. I don’t even think they’re made anymore! Mystic mints are like thin mints and Oreos had a baby: Chocolate wafer cookies sandwiched in minty creme filling then coated in fudge! I think I will mystic-mintify your Oreo recipe instead.

    Oh, and, part of the Girl Scout cookies’ secret to their wonderful mint flavor is that they use peppermint OIL, NOT extract!

    Hi! These look sooo good, thank you for all your great recipes! ๐Ÿ™‚
    A question, if I were to cook the whole batch, how would I have to store them to keep them crispy for a few days? In a glass jar at room temperature or maybe in the fridge?

    30 cookies are a lot of cookies, but it would be so cool to have some on hand for when some guests come home, just like I used to back in the gluten and sugar filled days! Most keto baked goods spoil or lose the crunch too fast to keep them out too much time. Thoughts?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Alba! It’s my absolute pleasure! I have kept these up to 4 days at room temp (stored in an airtight container) and they held up very well. Just keep in mind that this will also vary on your local humidity, but you can always pop them in the oven to refresh. Keeping them in the fridge wouldn’t work as it’s more humid, so that would be counterproductive ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I know that a few readers also keep them in the freezer like traditional thin mints? Alternatively could leave half the batch already shaped in the freezer and bake straight. Hope this helps and enjoy! xo

      • Alba says:

        Hey thank you! I didn’t know you could keep them in the freezer, I’m from Spain and never had these cookies before, that sounds perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Paola says:

          My pleasure! It’s an American thing to keep thin mints in the freezer, and they’re actually delicious! Yo soy mexicana pero vivi en USA uno anos! ๐Ÿ˜‰ un beso y buen fin!

    I made these after they were recommended in a keto group on FB. I’m leaving a review because in all honesty I was still very hestitant, even though they said they were ‘properly good’. And indeed they are. It’s the first keto cookie I’ve tried that is actually crunchy, so kuddos.

    My one advice for others is to roll them out very thinly as they do enlarge upon baking.

    • Paola says:

      Hi Jessica! I’m sorry to have missed your comment…! So happy you enjoyed them and thanks for reporting back in detail, helps a bunch! xo!

  6. Jessica Hernandez says:

    Am I missing the serving size on the nutritional value? Surely that info isn’t for 2 dozen?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Jessica! It’s per cookie! Just keep in mind that (depending on the size you cut them), you’re likely to end up with more than 2 dozen. xo

  7. Dani says:

    Well this also work with powdered swerve, or is the granulated swerved required for creaming with the butter?

    Thanks! Canโ€™t wait to make this!

    I made these last night and they were soooo amazing. And I forgot to add the baking soda! Although when I shared it with my wheatbelly diet page they frowned at the Xatham gum. What is wrong with Xantham Gum? I did find a couple of substitutes with chia seed and boiling water or flaxseeds and boiling water. Seems easy enough, but why?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Jennifer! So happy you loved them! Xanthan gum is an ingredient which divides crowds (even though it’s actually completely natural). Some people are allergic to it or causes some stomach discomfort (like with all foods really). You technically can substitute with flax meal, but results are not the same. So just see how it agrees with your body (the most important thing with all foods really), and make a personal choice! xo Paola!

    I used Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips and attempted to melt on low on stove top but couldn’t get it to thin out enough in order to dip. Should I have use a microwave to melt instead? I even added a little bit of coconut oil to try to thin the chocolate out and it didn’t work very well either. How are you able to get the chocolate to the consistency to dip?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Amy! Mmmm I literally just melted it in a water bath on my stove top (I don’t own a microwave). It is thick, but it worked fine (not much different than a regular 70% chocolate behaves). Otherwise I would also suggest thinning it out with some coconut oil (I do that for my buttercream fat bombs…), as you did. Really not sure why, maybe try the microwave or a little longer? xo

    • Paola says:

      Hi Betty, would you mind clicking on US Cups below the ingredients? It will switch everything to cups xo

      • Shellie says:

        Hi,

        I tried clicking on the “cups” but my cursor turns from an arrow to a magnifying glass…I cannot seem to get the conversion from grams to cups.

        • Paola says:

          Hi Shellie! My host screwed up a few things on the site and I’m working on getting it back on track. Would you mind checking back tomorrow please? xo!!

    Made these earlier this week and they were very good too. My daughter is a girl scout and I actually don’t want her eating the cookies as they’re very processed nowadays. These were an excellent compromise

  11. Monica S says:

    No offense to the girl scouts but these are even better than the original. Homemade, freshly made and with an actual crunch. First keto cookies I’ve tried that are actually crunchy wow!

    • Paola says:

      LOL! Probably what Girl Scout cookies tasted like when they were still homemade ;). So happy you enjoyed them! xo!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Lisa, if you’re talking about Lakanto (erythritol + monk fruit) it should work. I haven’t tested it myself, but readers use it quite a bit instead of swerve. xo!

  12. Sharon says:

    Would coconut oil work to replace the butter as cookies for my grandson need to be Dairy-Free. Thanks for your Great recipes

    • Paola says:

      Hi Sharon! Technically yes it should, but tbh I’ve never worked with ‘creaming’ the coconut oil with the sugar so I cannot guarantee the result. BUT, if you do decide to go for it, please report back with your results! xo!

  13. Monica S says:

    OMG!! I made the dark chocolate version and they’re like the gourmet bakery version of thin mints!! SO SO SO GOOD!! I cannot believe how crisp they are! Every other ‘crisp’ keto cookie from other sites I’ve tried has been totally bland. WOW THANK YOU!!!

  14. Emily Buchanan says:

    You have literally made my day with these, because I have a little girl scout dealer in my house and those thin mints have been looking particularly tempting lol!

  15. Maryjane says:

    If I use Cane sugar am I using the same measurement?
    I haven’t made them yet, but I would like to sooon.
